Daily Routine

FREE CHOICE

Free-choice time is used throughout the day to allow the kids to engage socially on their own terms. This allows them to be independent, and being in charge of their own choices.

CIRCLE TIME

Circle time is a time to bring the children together and begin their day. During circle time, children will learn the Pledge of Allegiance, days of the week, months of the year, calendar, letters, numbers, and other various concepts.

SNACK TIME

Tonganoxie Early Prep provides a nutritional snack each day with water. Alternate snacks can be provided for allergies. Please let the director know if there are allergies.

TABLE TIME

Table time is where children are broken into smaller groups and will use a variety of hands-on activities to work on various concepts introduced during circle time.

LUNCH TIME

Each child will bring a lunch from home each day at Tonganoxie Early Prep. Please have food cut and placed in a lunch box with an ice pack ready to eat. Tonganoxie Early Prep does provide milk and water.

CENTER TIME

Children are broken into small groups and will rotate to different developmentally appropriate centers to reinforce the skills learned throughout the time at Tonganoxie Early Prep (both new skills and old). This hands-on learning will help teach the children learn skills like one-to-one correspondence, Fine motor, matching, opposites, and many other skills.

REST

TIME

Each day at Tonganoxie Early Prep, there is a quiet rest time at the end of the day. We ask that the children rest, but are not required to sleep. Rest time is for 30-60 minutes each day. After 30 minutes, the children that are still awake will be taken outside by one of the teachers. The children that are sleeping will continue to rest. All Nap items are provided by TEP. Nap items will be sent home to be washed at the end of every week and returned the next school day. Children may bring a stuffed animal to snuggle with.

OUTDOOR PLAY

Kids love to play outside. There will be multiple times throughout the day, as long as the weather permits, where the children will get to let their imaginations go, have a chance to learn sharing, use large motor skills, and get in some physical fitness. If weather is Inclement, teachers will have various activities such as obstacle courses, or other engaging activities ready to go in Fellowship Hall.

STORY TIME

During the day, the children will gather on the rug numerous times to listen to stories. The children will begin to learn comprehension, sequencing, comparing and contrasting, and character traits as they enjoy a variety of different types of stories.

SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Children will grow with God as they learn about different bible verses and stories. In addition, various Bible songs and prayers will be taught each month.

SHOW

AND

TELL

Students can bring in any item (Limited to 3) that goes with our monthly focus or our weekly theme to share with the class at the end of the day. Show and tell is at closing circle every day.
