A Calendar Template is an easy thing to fabricate from scratch using any word processor or digital diagramming tool. What’s not so easy is to find or create a calendar that’s meant to track a certain kind of activity or string of activities. Specialized calendars are most commonly seen when planning activities for an entire school year. We’ve provided a number of academic calendar collections in our archives for free. This collection will give you a school calendar for a trickier and fussier clientele: preschoolers.
Whether you’re wondering how other schools are designing their calendars and spacing out their activities or whether you want ideas for season-specific and age-appropriate activities to put on the calendar in the first place, these free preschool calendar templates should help you out in all cases.
You can take an effective Monthly Calendar Template and combine it with a well-planned School Calendar Template, and still not have much idea how to tailor it to fit your preschool schedule. The complications arise because of the extreme youth you are dealing with. Far from academic bowls and series of major exams, preschool education is a much more holistic and richer time in terms of physical and creative activity.
Here are just some calendar examples from this collection to help you plan more appropriately for a student population of two-and-a-half-year-olds (plus the staff meant to handle them).
There are other examples that can help you get an idea of different ways to lay out your calendar, as well as what kind of information would benefit the most from being tracked on such a calendar instead of in a daily planner.
The concept of time management and planning for the future is best instilled at a young age. Using a kid-friendly calendar in the house and in the classroom, filled with activities and important dates for them to look forward to, is a good way to do this. Check out our collection for a good Kids Calendar Template to get you started.
