How Important is a Daily Schedule?

ImageEarly childhood education with a foundation in play is successful because it allows children to think, grow, and create while exploring a teacher-chosen concept. A play-based preschool may sound unstructured. Play-based does not mean that we don’t have a daily schedule or lesson plan, and it doesn’t mean that the students are running wild, doing whatever they please. It does mean that our students learn through play, and though they have the freedom to play with materials as they wish, there is structure and purpose to our day with goals for learning. Our daily schedule provides predictability and structure for our students.
