Daily schedule

Young children like to know that they can depend on certain daily routines. This daily schedule helps them learn the order of their day and what to expect, and it helps me organize each day and plan a good balance of activities and experiences for the children. Please keep in mind that this schedule was developed to accommodate a range of age groups.
