At any timeā€¦.

Clean-up time:  children are encouraged to help put toys and the day's activities away

Movement activities: indoor activities to include games, music and movement, parachute games Outdoor play is kept unstructured to allow the freedom to explore, run, be active or just relax in the fresh air. Whenever weather permits, we will take our indoor activities outside. Children will need to be dressed for outside play each day, including extra mitts, warm hats, snow boots, snow suits, extra socks or sun hats, swim suit.

Transition time: to ease flow between activities, teachers often sing songs, play group games or do finger plays. This tends to help children move from one activity into the next
