DAILY SCHEDULE AND CURRICULUM

The WASC curriculum, designed to meet the goals of our program, provides a variety of activities including arts and crafts, sports and games, music, dramatic play, building and transportation, cooking, science and discovery, math and literature, fitness & wellness activities, special interest areas and special events.  Activities are planned to meet the needs and interests of the children. A weekly activity plan is posted at each site for parental review.

OUTDOOR PLAY

WASC will provide outdoor play periods for the children each day as weather permits. In inclement weather, indoor large muscle activities will be provided in the gym.  The outdoor play period may be canceled or the length of time adjusted for extreme temperatures or threatening weather.  Children will stay indoors if the temperature or the wind chill factor are 15 degrees F or below.  Outdoor play will not be provided when there are non-weather related safety issues outside.  When an air quality alert is issued, children will not remain outdoors for extended periods and strenuous outdoor activity will be avoided.  Please see that children are dressed appropriately for active play for both indoors and outdoors.  This includes hats, gloves, and boots for winter snow play.
