Schedule, Calendar and Snow Days


ACCD Daily Schedule

A daily schedule or routine gives children a sense of security and predictability so needed early in life. It is also important to encourage spontaneity so our schedule is always flexible.

Morning activities include breakfast (optional and depending on time of drop-off), free choice at learning centers, small group learning, snack, and outside play/learning.

Afternoon activities are lunch, rest/nap time, large group learning, snack, outside play/learning, and free choice at learning centers.

ACCD Snow Day Policy

ACCD has every intention of staying open on public school snow days and during inclement weather. However, the Center will close when:

  • There is a power outage lasting more than 1 hour during business hours, per State of Michigan Licensing Regulations.
  • Severe weather is such that opening or remaining open presents a safety concern for children and staff.

When there is a closure, parents will be notified immediately via Brightwheel (internal messaging system), email, and social media.
