Butterfly Room

little_rascals_new2 The Butterfly room is for children aged 3-4 years and is a very busy and fun room. This is a Pre Pre-school room where we start to introduce the “High/scope” routine which is the curriculum that we follow in our Pre-School. The Butterfly room is divided into areas; The Home Corner: The Block Area: The Art Area: & The Book Area. The children are independently toilet trained in this room and similarly to the other rooms this room is also self contained where they have their own toileting facilities. We provide activities during choice time that are based on the children’s interests, which is following the Aistear Curriculum. The routine is flexible for example if the weather is nice the children can stay outside for longer! Children are offered Art & Crafts, Jigsaws, board games, a well stocked block area, a wide variety of books that are age appropriate and visually eye catching and colourful. The Daily Routine for the Butterflies is as follows:
  • 8:00-9:00 Meet & Greet in the Wobbler Room
  • 9:00-9:30 Breakfast in the Dining Room
  • 9:30-12:30 Circle Time, Choice time, Tidy up time, Outside time, Books Story time
