New Routines in 2022
Let’s shape things up! 2022 is the time for new routines and getting back into the swing of January. January is the perfect time for a new start, especially after those Christmas indulgences! Here at ABC Day Nursery, we love new routines to start the new year.
Each room has a different daily routine depending on age but this week, we explored our baby room and how the Adventurers have implemented dinosaurs into their every day play!
The Adventurers are starting to learn table manners! Luckily for them, yummy food is a daily routine at the nursery and the children all love the exciting yummy menu.
Some of the new Adventurers need encouragement at mealtimes so the older children model good manners. They model using cutlery properly, sitting nicely together, eating different foods and saying please and thank you. This helps the younger children learn the mealtime routine!
We love a good song here at ABC! For toddlers and children, singing strengthens their lips and tongues which encourages clear speaking, and also expands their vocabulary and teaches them about creative language and rhyme. We like to implement songs every day and do this to help the children with mealtimes. The children know that every day, we have song time before we eat and this helps them prepare for mealtimes.
What a wonderful way to implement new routines then including things the children love to do! Routines give children a sense of security and control over their environment and help their later development. Want to learn more about why children need routines?
