A typical day begins with bright faces yelling "hi Colleen!" often accompanied by hugs. Some stories with children that are saying goodbye to their parents follows. As they begin to know snack time is upon them they are very excited to sit together and enjoy a warm, homemade snack. Next is outside time, sensory time or large motor activities indoors, depending on the day. As it nears lunch the littler ones start their meals and are getting tired. Bottles, rocking and patting backs while lullabies call these little ones to dreamland ensues. After a nice rest they are up and ready to visit, read stories, then eat and play all over again! They love the predictable routine of their days at the centre.
