DAILY ROUTINE

Our program is flexible. The same things happen more or less the same time everyday. The emphasis is on routine rather than sticking rigidly to times. If changes are made the children are told beforehand so that they still feel in charge. Each session is structured with predictable routines that provide the child with a sense of security and competence.

The daily routine is as follows:

Arrival

Children are greeted as they arrive. They may stop for a hug or to tell or show us something. Parents exchange last minute information with us concerning pick up, past illness, etc. before leaving as quickly and quietly as possible.

Creative play

Children engage in activities in the different areas of the classroom, freely choosing what they would like to do. This is the most important part of the session for your child. We allot this part of the session the longest time.

Snack time

Children wash their hands before sitting and eating their shared snack. This is a social time for children and the teachers to interact with each other outside of the classroom. 

Tidy-up time

Children are encouraged to help tidy the classroom and put the equipment away.

Circle time/Story time

Teachers and children gather together for circle time and story. This enhances language development, listening skills, self-expression and attention span. 

Outdoor Time/Movement

Rain or shine! Children learn many skills such as balance, coordination, rhythm and body awareness. It is also an important time for developing self-esteem and confidence. 

Departure

Parents pick up children from outdoor area.
