The following schedule is a sample of what parents may expect during a typical school day. The time frames are meant only to be a guide, as sometimes the children may need more time outside. Other days a particular project (bread making, slime concocting, full-room train track construction) may require extra time. Still other days we may be on one of several different field trips that occur throughout the year.
