This page hosts the school year and summer program daily schedule. Please note that we are a child-centered and Cooperative school. We have programming and visitors throughout the year that may alter the schedule and our curriculum and activities are emergent, based on the children’s needs and interests. So times and activities are to the best of our knowledge and may be changed due to any of the above reasons. No matter what we promise learning, exploration and play!
