Daily Schedule

The daily schedule for the children is a guide. It provides a framework for planning and organizing the daily routine and play activities for the children.

The daily routines for children may be a little different based on the age of your child.  Infants follow their own biological need.  They are fed, changed, and nap when they need it.

Toddlers and Two's are changed/taken to the toilet before transitions and as needed. Adjustments to the schedule are made as your child gets older and his/her needs change.

You may notice that as your child gets older, he/she may alter her/his own schedule to fit the group.  Some common changes you may notice in your child's behavior after enrollment in any group care situation include altered sleep/wake patterns (staying awake for longer hours or napping more frequently for short periods of time) or changes in appetite.

The daily schedule below is an outline of a typical day with infants and toddlers.  Keep in mind again that, if needed, the schedule will include children's individual needs based on their age.  This is a sample that includes the different types of components to the daily schedule.
