Children enter the space to sounds of classical music, which plays throughout the day. We begin with 15 minutes of unstructured play, followed by special lessons or programs, including

yoga, music, drama and foreign language instruction taught by professional members of our community. The children then have a period of focused work -- primarily self- selected, ability appropriate tasks leading

towards academic skills. Lunch is usually provided by parents, who sign up to bring food one day a week for a month. The day could also include gardening or a field trip to a museum or other cultural destination.
