8:45 – 11:15
Our morning begins with the children trading out their shoes for slippers, entering the Montessori prepared environment and beginning their self directed learning for the day. Teachers act as guides following the children’s interest and pace of learning and presenting new materials when ready. Our work cycle concludes with a circle time of singing, calendar and group presentations.
11:15 – 12:00
Morning Class Ends/Lunch Time
Half Day Morning students are picked up. Students staying all day formally set the table family style for lunch with placemats, napkins, glass plates and cups. Teachers join the students at the meal to facilitate pleasant conversation and appropriate manners. This is a wonderful time of relationship building.
12:00 – 12:15
