6-hour schedule for VPK/Pre-Kindergarten?
Hello, everyone. So a few weeks ago, I told you guys that I was offered a job as a VPK teacher, but I was then informed that I was only hired under the possibility of becoming a VPK teacher. I had originally decided to go with this particular company. However, when I went to do my livescreening background check, the agency responsible lost my results for two and a half weeks. So my position was given to someone else.
Well, then they wanted me to become a floater for a center that was 28 miles away from me one-way. However, I do not have reliable transportation for going that far. So on a whim, I decided to apply to other VPK position jobs. Within the same day, I received a call for an immediate interview and offered a job the same day. I accepted the job the next day.
This center just opened in in January. They want to start VPK some time this month or the beginning of next month. Well, the VPK room is a mess, so I have to decorate it and rearrange it. I was also given the curriculum. I have no idea what progress the children are at because it is already February. So I was going to do an assessment to see where I should begin. However in the meanwhile because the program is starting so late, we are doing 6-hour days instead of the usual 3 or 4. I need help with the schedule. Class starts at 8:00 - 2:00 or 8:30 - 2:30. Lunch is at 11 or 11:30 (I forgot). No naptime.
Can anyone suggest a schedule?
