3:40 to 4:15 Arrival at St. Marks.

The school agers place their backpacks along the side of the church and participate in free choice outdoor activities, group games or sports.

Outdoor time may vary according to the children’s interests and the weather. Staying within ratios, one group may remain outside longer and one group may go inside earlier.

During inclement weather, the group goes inside. Gross motor activities take place during this time, either in one big group or in smaller groups, based on the number of children in attendance and what games are chosen. Gross motor activities take place for at least twenty minutes, based on the children’s interests.

4:15 to 5:30 The children transition to indoor free choice activities. Backpacks and outdoor clothing are hung on the hooks and outdoor footwear are placed on the boot trays. The children and leaders wash their hands and change into their indoor shoes.

Children engage in free choice activities during this time, which include but aren’t limited to: science, creatives, computer, board games, books, dramatic play, and manipulatives.

Children may eat a snack during this time. Fruit and a grain product are available for the children who do not have a snack.

Children tidy up prior to leaving for the night.

5:30 to 5:45 Remaining kewlagers tidy up and walk to the main site and hang up backpacks and coats on the hooks in Kinderzone.
5:45 to 6:00 Remaining kewlagers engage in activities with younger siblings and/or in Kinderzone until pick up. Children tidy up prior to leaving for the night.
