What happens on a typical day?
A sample guideline for the First Steps preschool programme daily activities.
Depending on the season, and specially planned events or activities, changes may be made.
We open the doors at 9am and welcome the children. Mornings at First Steps include circle time where the children participate in roll call, music, movement and dance, art, building and tactile activities, outside playtime in our private play area (weather permitting), curriculum-based learning, and snack time.
The afternoon begins with lunch time, and the children enjoy their packed lunch sent from home. During this time, we assist the children in developing table manners and skills such as learning to use a cup with no lid. Lunch is followed by nap time. The remainder of the afternoon includes art classes, outside playtime (weather permitting), more curriculum for the butterfly group, general playtime for the caterpillars, music and movement, a light afternoon snack, and circle and story time while waiting for parents to arrive at 3:30pm. We say good-bye, until tomorrow!
