Afternoons at Preucil provide an extension to the morning. If participating in Afternoons-Only, children have the opportunity to explore all that is Preucil—music, play, art, outdoors, etc. Our afternoons are full of enriching activities and extended learning opportunities. Afternoon-Only children start their afternoons in the music room where they greet their teacher and participate in an opening activity, followed by music with Lauren. They then join the morning children who are staying for afternoons. Classroom play and exploration, open art studio, music creation, mindfulness, and peaceful rest are all possibilities during the afternoons. Children develop their interests and expand their experiences. Children who stay all day extend projects and learning from the morning to go into more depth. Afternoon-only children have some time for group activities with their teacher and each other. We all enjoy stories together and end our day outside for large motor play or quiet reflection in our green space. Friendships are formed, ideas are expressed, and creativity and learning are fostered.
