A Day at Parkview Preschool

  • Parents will walk their children to the door where they will be greeted by the teacher

  • Parents will remain outside, to allow for social distancing

  • Children will hang their coats and backpacks on their designated hooks

  • The teacher will assist the children up the stairs, to the classroom

  • Children assemble on the carpet for daily routines

  • Center time for children to explore, cooperate, create and play, where teachers interact and support learning objectives

  • Snack time 

  • Gym time – children regularly head downstairs to the gym for physical activity -dancing, sports, and games

  • Show and share – during the last 10 minutes of class, the “Busy Bee” has an opportunity to present a special belonging that the class learns about through asking questions (please note: "Busy Bee" has been modified due to Covid-19)

At the end of class, the children will be released from the main door once a designated adult has arrived.
