A Typical Day at Tillamook

Our daily program varies and no two days will ever be exactly alike. Our schedule is flexible; however, we typically maintain the same order of events to allow children the security of knowing what to expect next. 

Every day at Tillamook includes these important elements:

CIRCLE TIME

As a community, we begin and end each day in song, greeting each child by name and discussing topics important to the group.

ART

Children are encouraged to express their creativity through an optional daily art activity. Painting easels, a writing station, chalkboard and play dough are always available, too.

FREE PLAY

Children can flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces as they wish, choosing from a wide variety of child-led, play-based activities.
