Daily Program

Activities at Willson will include a variety of experiences. 

With the exception of special days, you may expect most classes to contain the following:

A period of free play offerings:

  • creative art opportunities where focus is on the process and not the product
  • opportunities for imaginative play
  • science play and experiments
  • water, sand and sensory play
  • woodworking
  • block building
  • dramatic play
  • cooking and creating snack

Snack: A social time for new food experiences, often creating food with our assistant teacher where the kids get to pour, stir, cook and clean up.

Group experience: Kids are to sit as a group and look at books, listen to the teacher read a story, sing songs, dance and participate in finger plays.

Outdoor activities: We try to get outside when the weather allows. Our playground encourages climbing, running, riding on toys, playing in the sand box or in the snow during the winter. It’s a great opportunity for large muscle activities and games.

Indoor gross motor activities: When we are not able to get outside, we can utilize the church’s social hall for games, dance parties, playing with balloons or the large parachute.

Lunch: Children get out their own lunch to open and eat and share conversation with the table.

Each child brings his/her own lunch and water bottle from home. 

We provide a daily snack!

Daily Schedule

Willson Preschool is in session Monday through Friday beginning at 9:30 and ending at 12:45. 

Each morning there is an option of extended care in the Early Bird program (8:30-9:30) and on Monday and Tuesday in the Late Bug Program (12:45-3:00). 

These programs are separate from the regular classes with limited enrollment.

Field Trips

We love exploring and learning all the things there are to do in Bozeman. Parents are encouraged to come along for the fun!

Below are just some of the fun activities we take part in.

Pumpkin Patch

Each year we visit Rocky Creek Farm to pick a pumpkin and take a hay ride.

Visit Local Businesses

Whether it's visiting the companies parents work at or learning about the many businesses in Bozeman; we love to take the kids on tours!

Thanksgiving Feast

Perhaps our most well-known (and well-loved) activity is our annual Thanksgiving day feast. The kids love to perform for their families!

Pizza Making

Our friends at Old Chicagos love to set us up with a fun personal pizza making experience!
