A Glimpse Into a Day at CitiTots. . .
Upon arrival, we start out by being served a nutritious breakfast. . .
followed by open play or choice time. . .
until it is time for morning circle.
Our learning topic for the day is inspired by our theme for the month. . .
whether it be learning about our amazing body, health and fitness, understanding and recognizing our feelings, the weather and changing seasons, rainforest adventure, dinosaur dig, ocean commotion, the alphabet house, fables and folktales, winter wonderland, growing gardens,
discovering outer space, bees and butterflies, sights and sounds of winter, the desert, going on safari,
or identifying our super heroes and community helpers, or simply exploring art activities.
After our learning activity, we transition to morning snack followed by more fun playtime while exploring the outside world for our daily neighborhood walk. . .
and/or visit to the play ground.
After which time we return to our school. . .
for a nutritious meal followed by rest time.
After we are reinvigorated once more, we have another nutritious afternoon snack before we embark on another fun learning activity whether it be an enrichment class like yoga. . .
music and movement. . .
soccer, or some pre-academic activities in math,
literacy. . .
science. . .
or simply to enjoy story time. . .
or pretend play activity.
Once we’re exhausted,
we have dinner and unwind for an open play/choice time. . .
until it is time to go home.
On some special days we get a visit from Doctor Seuss or our old time favorite, Elmo, who we get to read, dance, and play with.
Throughout the day we are able to demonstrate how we can be empathetic, curious and daring learners. . .
and use our imagination with a student led re-creation of a choo choo train. . .
while having lots of fun!
Every activity we engage in leads to developing and strengthening our gross motor skills…
fine motor skills…
and social emotional skills.
