Our Basic Routine
We believe in providing children with large blocks of time to allow them to fully engage in meaningful experiences.
At St. George's we like to be flexible and we change the way our day operates according to the children, their interests and the flow of their play. But we also have a routine which takes into account sunsafe practices, staff to child ratios and times for active play and rest and relaxation.
