Rhythm of the Day at Lilyfield ELC

Everyday routines and transitions play a significant role within the lives of our children as well as our families and educators


As children grow and learn, routines help them to develop a sense of security and feel safe in our stable learning environment. We call this the ‘Rhythm of the Day’ as we believe it must be as balanced and as smooth as possible.
