Center time is the main activity period that gives children a chance to work in many different group dynamics. All centers are open and children may choose areas of play. During this time the art teacher leads a project in the art studio, and at least one other teacher leads a small group activity for all children. Music, yoga, or woodworking enrichment programs are offered one day each week. A greenhouse located on the property is an important part of our curriculum, giving children a chance to learn about the natural world.

10:30-10:45 Group Time

The children regroup, sing songs, and prepare for snack.

10:45-11:00 Snack

Kids having snack
Snack is provided each day and includes a carbohydrate (such as crackers), fruit or vegetable, and drink (milk, juice, or water). BPS maintains a nut-free environment to accommodate children with severe food allergies.

11:00-11:15 Story & Share Time

Teacher reading to children
During this last group time a teacher reads a book to the children. The children are invited to recap their thoughts from our morning and they take turns sharing a special item from home.

11:15-11:45 Outdoor Play

Large motor activities round off the morning with outdoor play. The children can choose to play on the climbing equipment, ride a vehicle, dig in the sandboxes, play in the pretend house, or perhaps be a caretaker in the greenhouse.
