A large portion of our morning is comprised of Center Time. This is a time when all of the children work together in a natural and collaborative learning environment and self-select activities of interest. Developmentally appropriate learning experiences designed to engage the children in all learning domains are offered daily. There are also more structured portions of the morning during which the classes meet independently. This occurs during Greeting Meeting; Books, Puzzles and Journal Time; Second Meeting and Story Time.
