Clean Up

Free Play ends as teachers and kids come together to clean the play areas and get ready for snack.

Once the school is tidy, the children sit together as a group and get ready to make a hand washing train.

Children move in partners to the bathroom where two sinks are available for hand washing.

The process of partner selection is a great chance for social development as children learn that they can be partners with everyone in the group.

A teacher watches over the hand washing area to ensure that the soap gets onto every little finger and that hands are thoroughly rinsed and dried!

After each set of partners finish their hand washing they find a place together at the snack tables.
