Daily Schedule

Studies have shown that children who have supportive and rich early educational experiences enjoy lifelong benefits, such as high academic performances and even positively affected health as adults.  These benefits of preschool are supported by a daily schedule that takes into account children’s developmental needs, from proper nutrition to motor skills. At lilac we acknowledge the needs of young children and adjust activities, if necessary, according to a child’s individual needs. lilac’s preschool day is a balance of structured lessons, play time, flexibility and routine, as well as free choice. lilac children will be well prepared emotionally and academically for the transition to kindergarten and the next step of their lives.
