A Closer Look of the Average Day at Preschool

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to follow your child around during their day at preschool? You would get to see how their day goes, and how they interact with other kids. You would also see what they did during those hours that they were away from you. Well, most preschools will have a similar schedule as to how they plan their day out. Here is a look at the average day at preschool. You may ask your child and find that many of these activities are things that they do on a daily basis in their preschool classroom.

Children Begin to Arrive

At the start of the day, children will begin to arrive. As they come in, there will be several activities for them to take part in while they wait on all of the children to get to class. They may work on puzzles, color pages from a coloring activity book, build with blocks, or even sing songs. Once all of the children arrive, they will start the structured part of the day. Most of the time, this is somewhere around 8:30 or 9:00 a.m.

Breakfast and Early Morning Activities

Some preschools will offer breakfast for the children. If so, they will usually go and eat their breakfast first thing. Many of the schools will provide a healthy breakfast, so you never have to worry if your child is getting nutritious food while they are there. There are certain requirements for the foods that can be served at school, and they must fall within nutritional guidelines. This means that they will be eating something healthy if it is provided by the school. After breakfast, there are some early morning activities which may include story time, singing songs, or playing in groups.

Educational Time

Once the children have had a chance to get moving, they will then start their educational lesson for the day. This may be focusing on a particular number, letter, color or shape. They will usually do an activity sheet and talk about the particular thing that they are learning about that day. In preschool, they will usually spend several days learning about the same concept so that they are sure to remember it later on.

Lunch and Nap Time

Children will usually start to get hungry, and then it will be time for them to eat lunch. After they eat lunch, they will usually have some sort of nap or rest time. Naps are very important for preschool aged children. You will want to make sure that your child has a mat and a blanket to lay with during nap time so that they feel comfortable while napping at school. It is often times comforting to have something from home with you when you are napping away from your own bed. Usually after nap time will be outdoor play time, and then parents will start to pick up their little ones from their fun filled day at preschool.
