What Does Our Day Look Like?
During the day, the Euro Academy students are exposed to many enriching experiences not normally offered to preschoolers such as yoga, cooking, gardening and foreign languages.
At Euro Academy, a plenty of time is spent in natural outdoor play as we deem alfresco an extension of the classroom. The outdoors provides children with the time to explore nature through various experiences; the children might enjoy making mud pies in our outdoor kitchen, playing in sand, jumping in leaves and puddles, as well as watching birds and observing insect and plants.
Natural play outside also provides children with much needed development of large motor skills; as recommended by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, our students spend at least 60 minutes a day in physical activity.
Lastly, within our yard, the children experience every aspect of learning about the environmental threes: Reducing waste, reusing materials, and recycling.
Gardening is also an important aspect of our school. Our students learn how to plant and attend to seeds, grow veggies and fruits, and, most importantly, understand that these fruits and vegetables are nutritious and delicious.
The atelier, our art studio, is an essential part of our school. The atelier is a place for exploration, creativity and a way for children to express their thoughts, feelings and ideas. Natural, unexpected and recyclable objects that are all around us open up a world of discovery and experimentation for all young children.
A typical day at Euro Academy starts with a short community meeting, which sets the tone for the day and helps children realize that we are a community of unique individuals and learners. Blocks of time are organized during the school day to plan for and rotate the use of spaces our environment offers.
Daily activities may include art, music, cooking, a practical life lesson, outdoors/gross motor skills development, gardening, pre-reading and pre-math instruction, circle time, story time, library time, foreign languages, science and social studies projects, and activity/learning centers.
