A great place for kids to learn and grow!
A day for school age children during the school year begins with a greeting from a friendly face. Once you have signed them in, you will escort your child to their proper classroom. There they can choose activities such as reading, art, puzzles and games to entertain themselves with friends while the teacher prepares breakfast. After breakfast, the children enjoy some outside time for a bit of fresh air before grabbing their things to head to school in our transportation van. As the bells ring at the end of the school day, their Morning Star teacher will greet them at the assigned location with the van to pick them up. Once back at Morning Star, the children will enjoy a nutritious snack and some homework help, followed by games, free play and some outside time while waiting for parents to pick up.
A year for school age: throughout a year children will make connections both socially and emotionally. Our goal is to help them succeed as they travel through their school years. Children will be exposed to basic Spanish and sign language words as well as relaxation time with yoga, during each afternoon.
Children will only need lunches during NSD breaks, summer and non-school days. Lunch is at 11:30 and all children are required to bring a brown bag lunch complete with beverage if they will be with us at lunch time.
Snacks are provided throughout the day: a snack is served immediately upon arriving back from school. Snacks include many healthy options that meet the state guidelines for healthy eating. Snacks include items such as; bagels, yogurt, fresh fruits and vegetables, we also like to include some fun snacks like English muffin pizzas and quesadillas. In the school age room, we love to have the children help prepare their own snacks.
During outside time school age children will have access to scooters, sporting equipment, our sandbox to create rivers and volcanoes, and many other creative and adventurous projects and outdoor games.
