Best PreSchool & Play School Program by Footprints

HighScope classrooms follow a predictable sequence of events known as the daily routine. This provides a structure within which children can make choices, follow their interests, and develop their abilities in each content area.

Choice Time
CHOICE TIME
  • Alternatives given as choices to children always helps in honing their decision-making ability.
  • At this time of the day children are given both, the choice and the apt material to choose from and play with.
  • Children focus on what they can create and how they can use their skills to convert a simple teaching aid or a toy into a new creation in our pre school programs.
  • Here we can note children creating empty carton boxes into farms and old clothes into robes.
Small Group Time
SMALL-GROUP TIME
  • In our early learning pre-school program, to identify one’s power and challenges, a small group is a prerequisite for being child-centric.
  • Children here gather in small group and connect with the teachers while they are being closely observed and scaffolded to do the activities.
  • This time of the day provides the child a secure space to communicate and express what they hesitate due to inhibitions in a larger setting.
  • The play school educational activities here are diversified from tracing letters, playing number games to solving puzzles etc.
Large Group Times
LARGE-GROUP TIMES
  • Children grasp the principles of engaging in a bunch and establishing communities best in a large group setting.
  • Here, children gather in a large group with their fellows and teachers to engage in various activities.
  • From taking turns, to taking lead and following with the team, here children build upon their social skills.
  • The pre-school extra-curricular activities here range from music, group recitals, dance to story narrations, puppet shows and much more.
Outside Times
OUTSIDE TIME
  • Children assimilate best when prone to environment and physically expand beyond the walls of the classroom.
  • As for the weather, children along with the teachers spend around half an hour each day in the outdoor area.
  • Children get to observe nature and also the principal lessons of life are learnt here like climate, sun, clouds etc.
  • Pre-school children are seen engaged in different physical activities along with honing their senses.
Transition Times
TRANSITION TIMES
  • This time of the day helps in creating a scheduled practice for the children. With a consistent everyday routine child knows what next is going to take place.
  • In pre-school daily schedule transitions are the gaps between other blocks of the day, like arrival to choose time or outdoor to small group time.
  • Whenever feasible, children are given options on how to make the transformation. For example, they may choose how to move across the floor on their way to small-group time.
Eating Times
EATING AND RESTING TIMES
  • Meals and snacks enables children to consume healthy food in a supportive social setting.
  • Rest is for quiet, solitary activities.
  • Children can be observed reading, engaging in self play during this time if they choose to not sleep.
