A Typical Day at Papoose Children's Center

We provide child care Monday through Friday every week except for the days which we are closed as indicated here.


A daily schedule gives children the stability and security they need early on in life. That's why we strive to provide a stable framework that adds structure to our daily lives but also leaves plenty of room for spontaneous and additional activities. The day is divided up between work papers, story time, songs and finger plays, and art projects.  During Circle Time, we work as a group on color, shape and number recognition.  Free play, recess, lunch and naptime round out our busy day.  Special party days and in-school events are also regularly scheduled.
