A Typical Day in Kindergarten

When it comes to kindergarten, no day is typical. It's a time for extraordinary growth as students establish a love of learning and an excitement for school.

Generally, the day starts with greeting, sharing, news and announcements. Students are involved in reading-related activities for about two hours each day and math-related activities for about an hour. Students also work with specialists in physical education, art, music and digital learning. There are snacks and lunch, and usually time for free play. There may also be rest time, especially at the beginning of the year.
