10:15 or 10:30 a.m. Wash hands and have a healthy snack!  The Marigold School of Early Learning provides a vegan style snack consisting of one fruit, one vegetable, nuts & seeds, a nut butter and gluten free crackers.  Water is available all class session.  The reason for this type of snack is to provide your child with important nutrients your child needs to maintain energy and focus for the entire time they are at school.  This style snack also promotes healthy eating habits.

10:30 a.m. Children use the bathroom before we go outdoors.  Children also wear boots or tennis shoes outdoors. We spend anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour outdoors.  This space will constantly be changing as it emerges into an outdoor science-based classroom.
