Name: Bowdish, Louise
Address: 2989 Weybridge Road, Weybridge VT 05753
Description: On a daily basis our day begins around 8 a.m. Some children arrive before then but we have choice time till most show up. Breakfast is between 8 and 8:30. No electronics are used till after 9 a.m. Fridays are an electronic free day which means to electronics are brought from home to share. It is understood that when children bring things from home they are to share and take turns. We work on projects of interest around 9:30 and if it is not completed we set it aside and continue later in the day. We have recess at 10:00 for about 45 minutes. I let the children help prepare lunch and then one of them helps serve with me. It is a highlight for them to see who gets to help me!! After lunch we read for 20 minutes. I have the older children pick out age appropriate books and the little ones either look at board/picture books or I read to them. Nap time is at 1:15 till about 3. Those that do not nap play board games or work on their projects that they may not have finished in the morning. After nap time we have snack and it is offered till 4:15 at which time food is put away and we have another recess. While we are outside the children make up their own games, play games that they remember from school, ride bikes (or practice to learn how to ride a bike) and scooters, play ball, play in the sand and water during the summer or go sliding and play in the snow during the winter, play 'house' or help me in the garden. It would be hard for me to list all the things the children and I do during the day!! Pick up time usually starts around 4:45. Another highlight that the children look forward to is that on Fridays we have movie time. They take turns either bringing an age appropriate movie from home or choosing one of mine. We turn the living room into a movie theater with seats in rows, making movie tickets and making popcorn as a snack. I encourage new families to come visit as many times as it takes for them to see what my day care is all about!
