Stingrays Class Schedule

There are weekly themes in our class and the shelves are changed weekly accordingly. These themes are chosen because of their relevance to the children’s interests and experiences.

7:30 am: School Opens
Children arrive and put their lunch kits in the fridge. Fruit and water cups are placed in the basket. Each child has their own drawer and peg for their belongings.

The children can choose freely between freeplay, sensorial activities, or art.

Free play – activities placed on the shelves and tables.

Sensorial activities – baking, playdough, and water play etc

Art Activity – adult guided art, free art is also accessible.
