Preschool daily schedules for your homeschool! You may be wondering what a typical day might look like when you home school preschool...or how about some unique preschool ideas?
I strongly believe that anything a preschooler needs to learn...can be taught by the parent at home. As with any child, having a daily schedule/routine in the home can help keep the child more calm and content.
Having daily routines, mealtimes, nap times, learning times, and dinner around the same time every day, can really make your life easier and your preschooler more calm!
Lets begin to see why and how...
At one point in my life I had 4 children under four...essentially, I was running my own preschool...with my own children. :) I came up with a lot of preschool curriculum ideas!
The following is the Preschool Daily Schedule I came up with...Following this routine every day kept my life fairly sane! :0
7:30 - Dress children
8:00 - Breakfast
8:30 - Teeth/Hair/Clean faces
During this time, my children followed me around "helping" me. There is no greater way to teach your child..but by example.
I would put a gate up in the doorway of their room, they played with toys, and listened to music. I took a shower and got dressed.
You may be asking why I did not get up before the children (before breakfast) and get dressed?? Well, after nursing babies in the middle of the night...it was just hard. :)
10:30 - Learning time
Teaching a variety of subjects on the floor in our living room, made learning time fun and exciting.
12:00 - Lunch
12:30 - Nap
Every child laid down for a nap/rest...
2:30 - laundry and Music
We folded laundry together and listened to music...then they played while I made supper.
5:00 - Supper
All the children helped with supper clean up...even if it was just wiping the chair legs.
6:00 - 7:00 - Bedtime Routine
7:00 - Bedtime and Read in bed
7:30 - Sleep
