Morning Preschool

 

Preschool Schedule

The daily morning schedule provides a balance of experiences each day.  It provides a structure that helps the child feel secure and competent.  The child knows what the teacher expects of him and what he can expect of the teacher:

  • Active/quiet play
  • Large group/small group/individual experiences
  • Indoor/outdoor play
  • Large muscle/small muscle activities
  • Child-initiated/teacher-initiated activities
