Our Fledglings enjoy hours of free choice time where our classroom guides participate in imaginative play, create art, build, and play outside! Each morning our classroom guides set up free choice options and topic-focused activities for our fledglings in our home-like settings. Classroom guides also actively continue sign language incorporation with this older group.
Transitions are punctuated by songs and other auditory cues to help children prepare to move from one activity to another. Assigning “jobs” to children also helps with transitions. Giving each child a “job” provides them the opportunity to practice responsibility and gain confidence in their autonomy.
The daily routine is a “living” schedule and is subject to change according to the needs of the cohort. The schedule takes into account the regular waves of waxing and waning energy so that children are able to optimize their growth and learning time while respecting the needs of their bodies.
