our rhythm & routines

CONCEPTUALIZING THE FLOW OF OUR DAY

The framework of our day closely compares to that of a traditional schedule. However, each classroom’s schedule is flexible and based on the particular needs of the group of children and the projects they might be working on at the moment. For example, if a child discovers a caterpillar while exploring the forest, the students and teacher may decide to extend their outdoor time to continue investigating. If a group of students wants to make soup for a student who has fallen ill, they may choose to spend the majority of their morning in the kitchen with the chef.    Bambini Creativi recognizes that every day holds something unique, in-store whether it is a surprise or disappointment. Therefore children learn how to adapt to the demands of each day. This may come in the form of taking the time to delight in splendor or making plans to overcome a challenge. Each day is filled with many projects and starts with a morning meeting. Meeting times help students reflect on previous projects, share brief updates, showcase a talent or presentation, and ultimately, plan together their journey for their day. From the moment the students walk into the school, they are expected to participate in basic routines and rituals independently.
