Daily Routine


Our preschool hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30-4:30.  We offer both part and full time care and have a mixed aged group of children 3-5 years old.

Morning Activities (8:30-12:30): 

  • Free play and morning work cycle(involves special exploration or arts and crafts activities built around the current theme)
  • Snack
  • Circle Time
  • Outdoor Play (may include a walk to Creston Park)
  • Lunch

Afternoon Activities (12:30-4:30):

  • Quiet time (Stories, quiet songs and rest)
  • Snack
  • Outdoor Play (gardening, neighborhood walk)
  • Music and Movement
  • End of the day group activity

Each day we build literacy and math skills necessary for a smooth transition into kindergarten.  These skills are worked on throughout our day whether it is counting how many children are at school during morning snack or learning how to rhyme with fun songs during circle time.

Our curriculum is child centered which means we work our curriculum around the current interests of our students.  Children are most engaged when given the opportunity to follow their natural inquiries about the world around them.  With any unit that we do, we try to include as many sensory-rich, hands-on activities as possible.  We also like to plan special field trips that go along with our topic of interest. 

Some sample units include:

  • Oceans
  • Great Books and Authors
  • Hibernation
  • Animal Tracking
  • Dwellings Around the World

Special hands-on projects we have used with these units include: 

  • Making a life size killer whale
  • Sponsoring a whale
  • Writing to our favorite authors
  • Binding our own books about ourselves
  • Following the daily life of a black bear and her cub in a den with a live web cam
  • Making casts of animal tracks we found at the park
  • Building our own school cob bench (pictured on the right)

The children at Wildflowers Preschool learn to become activists for causes that they believe in. When learning about endangered animals, they instantly asked what we can do to save them!  Below is a website you can go to which helps to save endangered animals!
