|We have preschool classes Monday-Thursday mornings in the Spring and Fall. Summer
mornings are spent outside, as much as possible
This is an EXAMPLE of our schedule. Potty breaks are not scheduled in, as bladders
can't tell time. We do have potty breaks every few hours, and diapers are changed
Scheduling is subject to change
depending on the children I have in child care.
For example, for older children, we may do PEOPLE of HISTORY rather than a COMMUNITY
HELPER, or learn to TELL TIME rather than work on a number. Our schedule changes to
the children enrolled
Because of short attention spans, times may vary. If the children become restless, we allow for
more free time or outside play (weather permitting), then come back to our planned activities and

children may be working on vowel sounds and/or learning to read.

NOTE: Children are encourage, but not forced, to participate in the above
activities. If one or two children tire of any of the above, I'll try a substitute.
Sometimes, especially younger children, want to play independently.
If the children, as a group, tire of any of the above, we'll move on to the next
activity or have a short break of free play.
