SAMPLE DAILY SCHEDULE

The Work-Family Connection’s teaching staff believes that the Programs should serve as the student’s "home away from home" and are places where a great deal of growth and development take place. Within structure and limits, there needs to be much freedom and many choices. We believe that the environment should be challenging, both mentally and physically, foster independence, teach life skills, and allow students to grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally.

Based on this philosophy, a flexible daily schedule is developed. We want the Program to be the children's programs and to meet each group's needs. The daily schedule is not cast in concrete, but is flexible and changes to make room for special events, themes, and projects. The schedule may change throughout the year, after observing the groups' interactions and asking students about their interests.
