Hello parents! I hope everyone is doing well. It is important to try to find a routine and stick with it. With all the craziness that is going on today, we can try to give our kids some security by giving them a predictable routine to follow. You will find less acting out when they know what is coming next. Check out this link for some great information about keeping to a predictable routine for your preschool-aged children: https://www.education.com/magazine/article/importance-routines-preschool-children/

    I drafted a sample schedule that will fit with the activities we will be sending you daily starting April 6th. I understand that some of you are still working outside of the home and if that is the case please create a routine that fits your schedule and know that if you don’t have time to do all of the activities that we send for your kids, it’s ok. If you need any help creating a schedule for your kids or have any questions about activities posted, please reach out to Mrs. Kenny or myself. We are here to assist you in any way that we can.
