Daily Routine

Here is a typical day’s schedule at the GAP. If it looks like many valuable skills being imparted to your child, in a fun-filled, action-packed day the children will love – you’re right!!

NB: This is not our schedule every day. It is only an indicative sample. Obviously, the program is child-centered, and so, for example, if children are enjoying an activity very much, the time for that activity may be extended that day.  Outdoor time is extended or reduced according to the weather.  Plus, sometimes we juggle the schedule a bit to keep things interesting and lively, and our staff of fairy-godmothers work their magic to accommodate everyone’s needs! 🙂

Of course, we have drinking water and toilets accessible all day, plus specific reminders/opportunities for these things at our transition times.
