What do we do all day?
As children thrive on schedule and routine, we try to keep our routine the same each day. I’ve attached a copy of our daily schedule.
“Centers” - We provide an activity on each carpet. We provide one dramatic play activity (something to pretend with) and one fine motor or block activity (something to build with). Generally within two minutes, these activities are scattered around the room, like a tornado has come through, but this is still good preparation for Preschool.
“Art” - Each day we do some sort of art or sensory activity. We mostly do “process art” where the child is provided with an art medium and a tool to create. They are encouraged to do what they want with it, fostering creativity skills, with zero focus on the end product.
