Session Routine - 6hours ?


Recommended Posts

we are concidering changing from a 3 hour session to full day (6 hours) . our current session plan is roughly


free play


outside -playing field, bikes etc

small group /free play

circle time / story /goodbyes for home.


how do other pre schools organise a 'full day' -we will factor in a lunch between 12 -12.30 (ish)


most of the children will be staying for the whole session -a couple will be leaving at lunchtime


any help gratefully recieved !

i would say a quiet session after lunch for those that may rest and another freeplay session (maybe with an adult led activity within the freepaly session), then story or small key groups at the end so that the children can chat about thier day. :o

I would say in my experience that the afternoon session is a repeat of the morning one. except for the time when some have finished their lunches earlier and are encouraged to sit in the quiet corner with a book.

we used to do a quiet time after lunch, often with a story , followed by freeplay/small group, snack/ drink, outdoor play again, and back in for story/ goodbyes etc...


we had a some leave before lunch, some after, new children arriving before lunch and after, so a lot of coming and going over the middle of the day. and with some coming only for the afternoon we had to ensure they had the same input during the session as they would have if they came in the morning.. hence the outdoor play..as we couldn't have freeflow.
