This week we reached letter N and decided to cover nest theme for Tot School! These plans give you what you need to get started with a week of activities. You’ll find a variety of early learning development skills are encouraged with these activities.
Like with all of our weekly tot school themes, you can find a link to download the weekly planner to your computer at the bottom of this page!
The play plans are a bit more child-directed and the learning activities take a little more adult supervision.
The play and learning always go together of course!
