*All of the times are approximate. Each classroom will "fine tune" its' schedule based on the different age groups, their maturity and independence. Many of the younger children are not toilet trained, therefore toileting takes time from their morning class time. Their attention spans are shorter, etc. The older children may need more time for their activities, to better prepare them for kindergarten.
