Here we are having a chat about the additions to our Yard Time routine. We have added some interesting initiatives to the yard:
1. Buddy Boxes - these are clearly marked zones on the yard where children can stand if they are looking for a friend to play with.
That way, our friends can see that we are looking for a buddy and come over and ask us to join in!
2. A Quiet Zone - sometimes children don't want to speed around the yard and prefer to have some space and serenity. The Quiet Zone is a place where children can walk or sit without so much hustle and bustle around them.
The new systems are working very well and we are really looking forward to next week, when the new Junior Infants will begin to join us at yard time!
