The Preschool Instruction Time
Preschoolers are always learning. Every interaction and experience provides them information, increases knowledge, increases understanding, and provides them with foundational skills they will use for the rest of their lives.
This schedule provides preschoolers with an excellent balance of teacher-led instruction and student-led creative free play that will help them successfully transition to Kindergarten:
- Whole Class Instruction: 35 minutes half day, 65 minutes for full day (this will increase)
- Small Group/Individual Instruction: 30 minutes for half day, 55 minutes for full day.
- Total Instruction Time: 65 minutes half day, 2 hours for full day.
