Global Preschool Curriculum – Playgroup Curriculum – Month One – Day One – Prayer and attendance / Circle Time

  • A regular routine for attendance and greeting children is essential to establishing a structured preschool learning environment.
  • However, ensuring that this routine is inclusive and respectful of the diverse cultures and religions in the classroom is crucial.
  • To achieve this, teachers/caregivers may choose to adopt a simple and inclusive greeting that does not reference any specific religion or culture. Examples of such greetings include “Good morning!” or “Hello, friends!” Additionally, children can respond with a simple greeting or hand gesture, fostering a sense of community and inclusion as all children participate in the same activity.
  • If teachers/caregivers opt to use children’s names during attendance, it is important to ensure that they are pronounced correctly and respectfully. Ask parents for guidance on the proper pronunciation and preferred nicknames well in advance.
  • It is important to note that the concept of Prayer and Attendance serves as a stepping stone toward conducting a moment of gratitude and reflection, which can help foster a sense of mindfulness and respect among the children.
  • Teachers/caregivers should also remember that Prayer and Attendance will be converted into proper “Circle Time” activities starting from Nursery and Kindergarten onwards.
  • Such activities can help set a positive tone for the day and create a welcoming and inclusive learning environment for all students.
