a typical day

Meredith Drive Preschool provides a variety of learning experiences for a well-rounded preschool education.  We want your child to feel secure and transition from one activity to another with confidence so we plan a daily schedule with these goals in mind.  Our schedule has few transitions to allow children large blocks of time for exploration and discovery.  Following the same general schedule each day, our preschool time is orderly yet flexible enough to allow for the day-to-day differences that occur in a dynamic early childhood classroom
