Note that time at activities and experiences will vary with the child. Although times are designated, this is a “rolling” schedule. Transition activities are not a required part of routine that must follow timelines. These are suggestions of activities to keep children entertained and assist them through transitions. Children should NOT be prepped and waiting for the next item on the schedule to begin.
