Little Knights Schedule

The pace and flow of the day for Little Knights is based on the individual needs of each child, in each class. We understand that each child has their own schedule for sleep, eating, and diaper changes, and that they are all at different  developmental stages. We have designed a schedule that attends to the caring needs of each child. View details of daily schedule here.
