Parkside students attend either half or whole day sessions. Our day is broken into morning and afternoon sessions. 

Our Morning session runs from 9:00 to 11:30.

The optional Lunch* period is from 11:30 to 12:30.

The Afternoon session runs from 12:30 to 3:00.

The *optional lunch hour is for half day students and runs from 11:30 to 12:30. Lunch can be added to either a morning or afternoon half day session. 

Parkside also offers extended care that can be added. It runs from 8:00 to 9:00 in the morning and from 3:00 to 3:30 in the afternoon.


   A typical day at Parkside includes both group and individual activities. In the early part of each 2 1/2 hour session we have what we call Circle. Circle is a time for greeting, sharing, listening and demonstrating.

   During Work Time the students perform their chosen activities on their own, with a friend or in small groups. The teachers continually observe the students, work with them one-on-one and help them interact with the prepared environment as well as each other in a positive and productive way.

    We also try to get the students out each day for exercise and socializing in our playground.
