The experience that the child gains through this type of program allows her/him to progress naturally toward the next plateau of development. The daily schedule consists of work time with the materials, an outdoor play time and a group structured time where sharing, songs, demonstrations of materials, songs and stories are explored. This program may be in an arrangement of two, three or five days per week. During any of these programs, snacks are provided as well as an optional nap for those children remaining through the extended portion of the day.
