Time Schedule and Activities.
Although the school applies the Ministry of Education’s recommended term schedule, the day to day timetable is tailor-made for every class to facilitate the new CBC syllabus. However, there are some common activities such as the General Assemblies on Monday and Wednesday, the daily Physical Education session, Scouts meeting on Wednesday, and clubs on Tuesday.
The CBC favors a hands-on approach to learning because it enables the student to connect what they learn to the environment around them. Therefore, most of the learning activities in Brainston Kindergarten take place outside the classroom setting. The teachers make use of the library, natural school setting, and field trips to facilitate learning. The students engage in enterprise activities such as creating and selling items within the school to earn money for stationery. Parents also participate by allowing the students to interact with their places of work or assisting during lessons that touch on aspects of their careers. For instance, parents with farms or farm animals allow children to visit them, and those with medical expertise help in first aid lessons.
Other activities in the school include music lessons, ballet session, Taekwondo classes, debate club, gymnastics, skating, modern dance, and poetry.

However, in both cases, the person receiving the child after school need to produce a pick-up card before the driver or teacher on duty relinquishes custody of the child.
