Programing: Typical Daily Schedule
Since we are a child led program we follow the lead of the children. Some daily things are set in stone, such as breakfast, lunch, and snack. Others are more flexible such as if the children need to get their wiggles out earlier we find a large motor space to use, or if they are intently concentrating on a project inside we may get out a few minutes late. Here is our general daily schedule that each room follows. Outside time and activity time may be flip-flopped depending on the classroom.
