Daily routines (See figure 1-2) are the common structures of the day that provide young children with the comforting predictability that is part of a quality early childhood program. Whether taking part in snack time, engaging in a morning meeting, or putting on their coat to go outside, children can benefit from well planned routines that support development and learning. For older children, daily routines also includes curriculum addressed regularly as part of the adopted reading and/or math program.
