Ok I work in a daycare/preschool full time. My issue is free play. I know it needs to be however, I get board. At our school free play is they do what they want they can do table toys, the computer, color, play house area, blocks, cars, etc. We open at 6:30 am and they have free play till morning snack at around 9 or 9:15. This amt of free play time really is long and boring. What do you all do during this time? Do you have a long free play time? Any prep work has to be done at nap time. At times though we will do cleaning in the room this will not need to be done everyday though. (there has been times when me and the other teacher have done prep work but we get talked to if we do it and are reminded to do it only at nap time.) Currently I am looking for just working preschool only. There isn't any job openings in our area. I am just wondering if any of you have any ideas to what we can do during this long time.
