3 year old classroom schedule!

Hello! I am new to this website and I was just wondering if there was anyone out there that teaches 3 year olds in a private childcare center/preschool? I teach 3 year olds, and I have about 16 kids in my classroom. I have one full time assistant and we are an all day preschool. I was just wondering if other teachers out there could tell me what their daily schedule is like? I am trying to get a feel for other schedules to see if maybe I could cut down on the chaotic-ness of my classroom!! Any suggestions would be helpful!! Thank you!!

I posted my schedule in the post below yours if you want to look at it.

I have a mix of 3 and 4's.

Do you have center time? I cut down chaos by limiting the number of children in each center at a time. They have to put their clothes pin (that has their name) on the sign for the center they are at.

Once there are 4 children in that center it is full, or whatever number you choose.

That worked for me, maybe it would work for you?

When are the chaotic problems?

because I have so many 3 year olds this year I keep my group times really short at the beginning of the year. I try to work up to 15 minutes for a large group by the end of the year and we schedule small group for 20 minutes but it is also shorter at the beginning of the year. I only have a few now that won't sit for at least 10 minutes- but the important part is to engage them in what you are doing. We use a lot of music/movement and puppets and games during large group. I also like books on cds. By January my helper of the day will take over the book on cd at the end of the day. They really look forward to being the one to turn the pages of the book.
