A Typical Day at 10 Acre Wood
This is an example of what our day might look like, but as always things may change or look differently depending on what students are interested in that day or in case of a severe weather event that keeps us inside. During the winter, we will go out until children become too cold as long as the frostbite time is more than 30 minutes. We will dress appropriately and do things to keep our bodies warm, but some days we may only be outside for a short amount of time. In this case, we have done our best to bring nature and loose part play inside so flow time and learning can continue indoors.
