Options for Full-Day Services for Children Participating in Head Start . Daily Schedule and Program Features


The morning schedule for children has times slated for art activities, morning circle, handwashing, breakfast, toothbrushing, free play, music, outdoor play, story time, handwashing, and lunch. Children then brush their teeth again and prepare for naptime. Free play follows naptime, as does handwashing, a snack, toothbrushing, outdoor play, and departure. Thus, the activities are fairly typical for Head Start. Program Performance Standards are followed throughout the day. But in this case, there is no structured learning activity in the afternoon.
