There is no such thing in anyone’s life as an unimportant day.
- Alexander Wolcott

A Typical Day

Daily routines at RASP are consistent, yet flexible. Kids can choose to play alone or with friends. They can choose active and quiet play. They can participate in both staff-led and child initiated activities.

There's more to daily activities than having fun. During activities, staff help the kids develop self-confidence, self-reliance, teamwork and fair play, good friendships, positive values, and excitement about informal learning.

Arrival – unwinding - snack

This is time for children to make the transition from school to RASP.  They have a healthy snack with time to socialize and unwind from their school day. 



Every family has a Homework Contract that tells us your preference for time spent by your child.  Staff are available to help with kids' questions about their assignments.  



Children are presented with staff-led activities (art projects, cooking, or gym games, for example).  Children can also choose among many available materials. They are encouraged to initiate and organize activities themselves. 


The heart of the day

The heart of every day is what happens between and among the kids and the staff.
