When the weather does not permit outdoor play, the children engage in movement activities indoors from 10:15-10:45am. Diapering is on a individual schedule Transitions- In between every change of routine, give children a verbal 5-minute warning. This notifies them of a change in activity. Children must use a hand sanitizer when coming in from outdoor time and wash hands upon arrival each morning.
