Activities and Schedule - Our Day

At Little Feet Dayhome in Airdrie where I provide preimum child care in Airdrie there will be many age appropriate toys, games, puzzles, arts & crafts, activities, songs, stories, free play, physical activity - walking, outdoor play, dancing etc. - this will challenge motor skills, communication skills, social skills, physical and mental strengths and abilities all designed to prepare children for preschool/kindergarten. We have a daily schedule that we follow, but children can still eat, drink and sleep outside these times should they wish​.

Our Day - Daily Schedule

Our daily schedule is just a guideline so parents know what to expect. Since unplanned circumstances may arise or other opportunities occur our schedule can and will vary day to day.
7:00am- 8:00am- Daycare children arrive and enjoy self-directed play with toys.
7:30am- Breakfast is served (this time will change depending on when most kids arrive for the day)
8:30am- Circle Time
Toys are tidied up and children take part in a circle time. Circle time is when children sit together to sing a song, hear a story, or do an activity.
Often an activity can be introduced at circle and then opened up for self-directed discovery time.
For example, the children could be shown how to tear tissue paper to make long strips in red and white. After circle time, the strips of tissue paper could be used at craft time to make a Valentine’s Day craft.
9:00am- Craft/Activity Time
9:30am- Snack Time
10:00am- Washroom break/diapering
10:15-11:30- Outside Play
11:30- 12:00 -Wash hands, washroom break and lunch preparations
12:00-12:30-Lunch
12:30- Story time and Washroom break/diapering
1:00pm-3:00pm Nap time for babies and toddlers
1:00pm-2:00pm Quiet time with books for non-sleepers
2:00pm- Sit down activities for older children. Colouring, cutting/pasting, puzzles, stamping, plasticine, Lego, etc.
3:00pm- Washroom break/diapering
3:15pm- Snack Time
3:45-4:30- Self-directed play
4:30-5:30- Outside Play and pick-up time

This type of routine will meet the needs of any older children as well as younger babies. If I have young babies that nap in the morning, they could easily nap before I go outside to play.
Some babies will enjoy a mid-morning nap in the stroller or in a baby sling.
Older non-nappers will quickly become accustomed to their hour long quiet time when they play or read quietly on their own.

I like spreading non-nappers out throughout the house or playroom so they have their own space to dream and rest in their own imaginary world.

Consistency

I am the primary care giver. You do not have to worry about high turnover and a new caregiver every few visits. Pet Free and Smoke Free Home. Flexible hours.
Healthy Meals

Provide healthy meals - meal plans will be altered according to children's preferences and any dietary restrictions.

Breakfast is served at 9:00 am; Lunch 12:00 pm and afternoon snack 3:00 pm or sooner. All meals will be accompanied by milk, juice, water or chocolate milk.
