Daily Rhythm and Activities
A day at StarSong usually unfolds in the following way:
8:30-9:00 Arrival—Outdoor play.
9:15 Go inside for hand washing and snack (organic fruit) with fingerplays, songs, and conversation.
9:45 Indoor imaginative play, and children can participate in an activity
such as lunch preparation, baking, crafts, painting, coloring, etc. We do circle games around 10:45, and sometimes puppet shows are held right before or after lunch. Little ones requiring a morning nap as needed.
11:00 Hand washing and lunch (whole grains with organic vegetables, and whole milk). Lunch is outside at the picnic tables when it's warm. A story is told, we enjoy conversation, and we practice our manners.
11:30 Outside free play and seasonal gardening.
12:30 Pickup time for morning children. Full-day children come in for diapering/potty, and a snack.
1:00 Brushing teeth, and lay down for nap time.
3:30 Upon awakening: Pottying and hair brushing, snack (such as oatmeal, carrots and hummus, or something we've baked).
4:00 Full-day children are picked up. On Mondays and Fridays, program closes.
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, children staying for extended care may play (indoors or outdoors as time/weather permits).
