Daily Framework

When creating a "schedule", or daily framework, we first consider our view of the child to organize our time. "How does this reflect our values and impact the children in our program?" Organizing time gives shape to our day and creates balance between indoor and outdoor experiences, project work, group interaction, and transitions. Our framework is our skeletal structure, but remains fluid in many areas to accommodate each days engagement and project focus. You will often hear us say, "There's always tomorrow." or "Domani, domani". Nothing about learning should be rushed and this traces back to our vision and one of our greatest values, respecting children.

Our infant program does not have a scheduled daily framework. Infants rest, eat, and play on demand. This framework does not detail transitions and toileting routines.
