I was on Kinder duty today…and I’m buggered!
5 hours with 30 4 yr olds is full-on…and very different to Preps at school!
The kids don’t stop, it’s go, go, go all the time. Which means the poor teachers and parent helpers don’t stop either!
They played outside for more than an hour, in the best playground kids could have! (The kinder is what I’d call “old school”: they let kids make mud pies, paint with water, water the plants, etc. It’s very free and creative.)
Even when the kids went inside, they kids didn’t stop. Playdough, gluing, dress ups, blocks, a piano, threading, reading books, painting, making a jelly fish, drawing, cooking, plus lunch and a snack thrown in.
No wonder Megan has flaked each day after Kinder…it’s exhausting!!
