A Day at
Playschool

Learn a Lot Playschool Students learn about fire safety in a hands on demonstration by Claresholm's fire department

Our play school day starts with outdoor play.  We then transition inside and our time includes:

  • circle time activities: including stories, songs and gross motor movement
  • craft time: a time to practice fine motor skills
  • play time: when children learn through play with our different centers which change often with different themes.

 

While these are typical days, we do have special and fun activity days as well as field trips throughout the year.
