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


Daily schedules for full-day Head Start are standard for preschool programs, with free choice activities, small group times, outdoor activities, two daily snacks, lunch, and nap time after lunch. Planning time for teachers is scheduled daily. Most of the scheduling concerns in full-day Head Start relate to staff coverage (e.g., assuring sufficient staff/child ratios and sufficient staff planning time), rather than to scheduling children's activities.
