We currently have free play the last hour of the day (2:30--3:30). I'm thinking about splitting it up, 30 minutes right at the beginning and another 30 at the end of the day. Thoughts? Should I do a full hour right off the bat, or just 30 minutes at the beginning of the day?
Well, in that I'm kind of torn.

The 30 minutes I have seems like a nice amount of time to get settled. And sometimes we'll have another 30 at the end of the day where I have different things available, and it's a nice balance.

But I've also read that it can often take a good 30-45 minutes for kids to really get into deep, imaginitive play. Which is why I have a huge chunk of time on Fridays. So I don't know! I'd probably do whatever makes sense with the rest of your schedule.
