What will my child do at preschool on a typical day?

Our day begins with group circle time which includes sharing, reading, singing and exploring a theme-based curriculum. Each day children participate in learning centers such as art, manipulatives, toys, dramatic play and block building. Our day also includes a time for snack and large motor activities where children play outside or in the activity center. The 4-year-old classes use Tools of the Mind curriculum.
