Importance of schedules

With the holidays behind us, many of you are ready to regain some normalcy. One of the things that young children rely on is a consistent schedule. Since young children cannot tell time, their daily schedule functions as a time telling device. Maintaining a schedule provides security and a sense of control for children. In classrooms keeping a schedule is an important step for preventing behavior issues. This can easily be transitioned to home life as well. When children know what is coming, they are not as likely to ‘fight’ each step along the way.
