Little Builders Preschool Daily Schedule

Each day is planned to provide activities and opportunities for emotional, social, cognitive, language and physical development.  Curriculum plans are posted so that parents may know what the children do each day and weekly newsletters are developed for parents that describe the planned activities and unique opportunities for the week.

The daily order of events will remain fairly constant so that the children can learn to anticipate "what's next".  Occasionally, changes are made in the schedule to accomodate weather changes, special trips, and visitors.  The following is a typical schedule for our preschool group.

Little Builders has a "Safe Place" that is utilized for children needing time by themselves.  This allows children to identify the emotions that are felt and time for reflection.  We also have breathing techniques that are utilized on a regular basis.  The safe place is next to our library so children can look at a book while there.
