TYPICAL DAILY ROUTINE

 

In keeping with Westover Hills Preschool’s High Scope curriculum model, the typical preschool morning will consist of the following activities:

  • Arrival, “Books, Puzzles, & Table Toys”(9:30-9:40am)
  • Morning Meeting/Morning Messages (9:40am to 9:50am)
  • Open Choice Time (9:50-10:40am)
  • Clean-up Time(10:40-10:50am)
  • Large Group Activity (15 minutes of “Review Time”, read-alouds, Music/Movement:10:50am-11:00am)
  • Music/Art/Book Room/Chapel (11:00-11:30am)
  • Snack Time and Journals (with Teacher-assisted dictation) (11:35am-11:45am)
  • Outside Time (minimally 30 minutes of vigorous, fresh air play at the WHUMC Tot Lot) or Gross Motor activities in the Music Room or hall due to inclement weather (11:50am-12:25pm)
  • Parent pick-up  (in the classroom) at 12:30-12:40pm

 Our 2.5 year old daily schedule is somewhat altered to accommodate shorter attention spans and additional physical care needs.  Their Outside Time occurs earlier than that of older students to facilitate adequate supervision by staff members.
