A Typical Day

 

It is important that parents know that this is only a general outline. The day varies according to the children’s response to certain activities. Some days more outdoor time is needed. Some days more quiet time and book reading.

Children at this age need to be allowed to freely express themselves, not forced to create an art project because it is Mother’s Day on Sunday and they haven’t made anything to bring home. Through free expression your child develops self-confidence…the greatest tool we can offer
