DAILY SCHEDULE


7:30

Daycare Opens.  Breakfast is available until 7:50am


8:00 – 9:00

Free Play

Toys and books are available for children once they've finished eating breakfast. This time is unstructured to allow for diaper changes and so that children who typically arrive late don't miss structured activities.


9:00

Snack and Good Morning Chat

Once we've played for a little while, we tidy up and head to the kitchen for a little snack. We use this time to talk about our plans for the day, and anything else that interests the children


9:30 - 10:45

Outdoor Playtime

After we get dressed to go outside (which can take a while during the winter months), we set off for a little adventure. We may play in the yard, or go for a walk in the neighborhood, or visit the park.


10:45

Return Inside

Once we've had our fun in the great outdoors, we come back inside and play until lunch is ready.


11:00

Lunchtime

Everyone washes their hands before sitting down to eat lunch together. Lunch always consists of a variety of foods so that even the pickiest eaters will find something they like. Menus are shared with parents at the beginning of the month to insure that Milhouse isn't eating two spaghetti dinners in one day.


12:00 - 12:30

Wind Down Routine

After lunch everyone get's their diaper changed, or goes to the bathroom. Once everyone's ready, we read stories for a little while to calm down before naptime.


12:30 - 3:00

Naptime

Everyone lays down for a little while. Some children need more rest time than others, so quiet activities are available after 2pm for children who don't need a 3 hour nap.


3:00 - 3:30

Wake Up Routine

Everyone heads to the bathroom or has their diaper changed after nap.


3:30

Snack Time

Time to fuel up for the afternoon


4:00 - 5:00

Outdoor Playtime

After snack we get dressed and head outside to play. We typically stay close to home during this time to facilitate parents arriving to pick up the children.


5:00 - 5:30

End of Day Routine

We tidy up the toys and head inside to read books together. A very limited selection of toys are available at this time, to facilitate easy pick ups.


5:30

Daycare Closes


5:31

Late Fees Apply

A fee of 1$ per minute per child applies. Special consideration will be made on days where severe weather impacts the evening commute.
