Our Routine


At Abundant Wonder, routine is more important than strict schedules.  We strive to fit each of the activities into each day. The length of time spent on any one task is dependent on children’s interest. Meal times are the only truly scheduled activities.

Our weekly routine is a general idea of what our weeks look like.  These activities usually take place in the mornings between 9:00-12:00, taking place of Circle Time through Outdoor Play. We do our best to have at least a short Circle Time on days we have outings scheduled. We also plan monthly Field Trips to support our theme. Summer routine is different to also include splash pad/water play, movie theatre, and park play days.

Mondays Literacy/Writing Activity
Tuesdays  Music Class (per semester)
Wednesdays  Library Day
Thursdays Math/Science Activity
Fridays  Art/Sensory Activity


“Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon.
A happiness weapon.
A beauty bomb.
And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one.
It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas.
And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight.
Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in.
With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest.
And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.”
~Robert Fulghum
