Our Rhythm

Daily Routine

We trust our families to make mindful decisions with the highest good of their children in mind. Because of this, we allow parents to choose when to schedule drop-off and pickup. To accommodate all schedules, our academic day doesn't begin until 10:30, but we open our yard at 9:00 for free play and our school-wide morning gathering. We do not have ‘tardies’ or ‘unexcused absences,' and we encourage family travel and unscheduled days off. We trust parents to make the best decisions for their families.

Our typical daily routine for our Full Time students loosely follows this format:

 

  • 9:00-10:00 Arrival

    • Snack

    • Outdoor Chores (feeding the animals, watering the gardens, etc) 

    • Free Play

  • 10:00 Morning Gathering // Announcements

  • 10:30 Language Arts

  • 11:45 Lunch and Outdoor Free Play

  • 12:30 Storytime  

  • 12:45 Specials (Art, Music, PE, Character Development)

  • 1:30 Mathematics

  • 2:15 Science or Social Studies

  • 3:30 Parent Pickup
