WLMS DAILY SCHEDULE (Infant/Toddler)

We understand the importance of maintaining a fairly consistent schedule for the health and emotional well-being of your child. The following schedule is used on a daily basis, with changes occurring on special days such as holidays and in-house program days.

6:00 am-8:00 amExtended day (Available)
Early drop off for children whose parents have registered


7:30 am - 8:00am Drop Off
As the children arrive, they are greeted at the door. They hang up their bags and outer garments, exchanging their outdoor with their indoor shoes. Some children will arrive quietly and wish to begin their day slowly. Others, our “morning” people might greet the day with robust energy and waste no time greeting a friend. Children are invited to have a relaxed breakfast.


8:00 am - 9:00 am Breakfast

9:00am - 9:30am Circle time
This group activity will include calling the roll, grace and courtesy lessons, stories, songs, games, or lessons on new activities in the classroom. Sometimes, circle time is given over to a Peace Ceremony. Children help feed the animals, water the plants and perform other chores.


9:30 am - 10:45am Work Cycle
Children spend this time working on individual activities at a table or on a rug on the floor. Snack is available until 11:00 AM. There is something on every shelf for every child. Many activities require a lesson from the teacher before a child can use them. Others, such as puzzles, can be used without a lesson. A child who chooses an activity that is too difficult for him is offered something that better matches his ability.

10:45am - 11:45am recess
Climbing on the play apparatus, sand play, and gardening are a few of the activities available in our Natural playground.


11:45am - 12:30pm Lunch
The children wash their hands, set the table, wait until all are seated before beginning, concentrate on manners and pleasant conversations at the table, take a taste of everything, pack up leftovers, throw away trash, and remain seated until everyone is finished and excused. After lunch, children help clean the tables and sweep the floor.

2:30pm - 1:30pm Nap time

Infant-toddlers Children go to the bathroom, find their sleepy toy, lie down on a mat, and listen to a story. Then we turn off the light and play soft music to help them fall asleep. This process takes about 30 minutes.


1:30 - 2:00pm Pick Up time
School-Day children are picked up at 1:30

2:00pm - 6:00pm Extended day


WLMS DAILY SCHEDULE (Children's House)

6:00 am-8:00 am Extended day (Available)


7:30 am - 8:00am Drop Off
As the children arrive, they are greeted at the door. They hang up their bags and outer garments, exchanging their outdoor with their indoor shoes. Some children will arrive quietly and wish to begin their day slowly. Others, our “morning” people might greet the day with robust energy and waste no time greeting a friend. Children are invited to have a relaxed breakfast.


8:00 am - 9:00 am Breakfast


9:00 - 9:15 am Circle Time
At the signal, a bell is rung and the children gather for circle. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know each other, share some laughs, have some fun and at the same time learn grace and courtesy. The date and weather are charted and a new work or presentation is shown.


9:15am - 12:15pm Work Cycle
Children explore the prepared environment, receiving lessons and working independently. The children choose their work from the different area of the classroom. Individual work time is the most important time because it is during this time that the children are making individual work choices, working at their own pace, according to their unique interest and abilities. During this time, children can have a self serve snack in our snack area.


12:15pm - 1:00pm Lunch
The children wash their hands, set the table, wait until all are seated before beginning, concentrate on manners and pleasant conversations at the table, take a taste of everything, pack up leftovers, throw away trash, and remain seated until everyone is finished and excused. After lunch, children help clean the tables and sweep the floor.
1:00pm - 1:15pm Circle Time
A second circle is called. This is usually a favorite time for most children as songs are sung and books are read. The children then have playground time weather permitting.


1:15pm - 2:00pm Recess


2:00pm - 2:30pm Nap Time
Children who are not yet 5 years old will rest quietly for 30 minutes. Children who are above 5 can choose to work with Montessori materials.


2:30pm - 3:00pm Pick Up Time


3:00pm - 6:00pm Extended Day
