During daily free time in the classrooms, children choose their own activities from a variety of manipulatives, games, building and art materials as well as items for dramatic play. An important part of each day is time on the play roof, which is equipped with climbing structures, slides, tricycles, balls and a playhouse.

Parents are asked to help chaperone field trips during the year; among the venues are an apple farm, the Union Square Market, the Transit Museum, the Staten Island Children's Museum. A highlight for the Kindergarten is a trip on the Circle Line.
