Every Day is an ADVENTURE at HPS Preschool:

  • Our day starts with breakfast to give our brain and body energy for the day.
  • During morning meeting we talk about the fun things we are going to do during the day.
  • We get to play outside with our friends, and explore our naturescape playgrounds.
  • In our classroom we learn through play during choice time. Our classrooms are set up with different areas, such as: art, library, math and science, blocks, toys and games, dramatic play, sensory and much more! 
  • Every day we have a large group read aloud, and also break into small groups where teachers work with students on specific learning objectives.
  • We get to eat a healthy lunch, and enjoy more time exploring on our playgrounds. 
  • By then, our bodies are getting tired, so we take a break with a rest time
  • We finish our day with a snack, and get ready to go home for the day.
