Funky Monkey Daily Schedule
Structure is an important part of a child's life especially in preparing for Kindergarten. The transition into school will be much easier for a child that is already used to a set schedule that is followed. For children that start at the daycare with some apprehension the schedule is a great way to visually show them how the day is going to go and gives them a chance to count down through the days activities until Mom and Dad come to pick them up. Always knowing what is coming next and being given a five minute warning before the transition into the next activity helps the day run much smoother and keeps everyone happy. I'm constantly amazed at how quickly the kids pick up the schedule and they like to frequently refer to it to tell me what we are going to be doing next. That's not to say that on occasion we may stray from the schedule to have a little bit of fun!
