Parent's Morning Out is for children 9 months- 2 years 5 months by August 31st, 2023. We have a class of 12 kids and 3 teachers. Parents can drop their children off at 8:50 am, and pick-up is 11:45 am, with noon being the latest. We are so excited each year to have old friends return and meet new ones. In our classroom, we thrive on routine! Every day we start off by greeting Mrs. Schnitzler at the door for check-in, and once inside, we wash our hands. We have morning free play while each child takes a turn at the art table for arts and crafts. In our room, we encourage the little ones to create their own craft with just a little assistance from us.
Soon we gather for circle time while we sing our favorite PMO tunes! Wheels on the Bus, We Are the Dinosaurs, and If You Are Happy and You Know It is some of our favorites. We introduce the Pledge of Allegiance and recite it together. Next, it is playground time! We love getting fresh air daily and playing and exploring on our little playground. After our time outside, it is one of our favorite times of the day...SNACK! Before snack, we quickly wash our hands and gather at the table. We talk about what day it is, do our favorite snack time songs and motions, and say our prayers. While munching on our snack, we listen to stories from our teacher. We love Pete the Cat in our room! After snack, we have music with the preschool Music Teacher. After music, we get more free play in all the different centers in the room. Centers are where we are learning to socialize, share, and take turns. At the end of the day, we have interactive Circle Time, where we have songs and felt board stories. Before we know it, it is time to go home, and we can't wait to come back to do it all again.
