Preschool serving children ages 2.9 to 4.
The children in the Preschool are led by their teacher in a daily set of consistent activities referred to as the "daily rhythm". This rhythm gives a young child comfort and security.
The daily rhythm includes outside and inside play, domestic tasks to help care for their classroom, wholesome snacks prepared by the children and teacher, singing, movement and painting. Each day there is a puppet show to aid in the telling of a fairy tale or seasonal story.
Overlapping the daily rhythm are the weekly and seasonal rhythms. Each season brings new layers to the daily life of the school. The stories, painting and gardening activities are guided by the seasons, and children are taught by these changes about the world they live in.
Each member of the Parent Co-operative contributes to the needs of the community by volunteering in the classroom or other ways a total of 50 hours per year per family. These hours can be filled by classroom volunteering, grocery shopping, bread baking, yard and classroom maintenance, and many other ways.
