Visual Schedules for Children 

A tool to help prepare children for what to expect during the day ahead.

Children thrive when they have structure and predictability. Knowing what’s coming up can help kids feel a sense of control and help them regulate themselves — and special routines can give them something to look forward to! By using concrete tools like a visual schedule, you can help children build confidence and know what to expect in their day ahead. 

On the first two pages of this printable, you’ll find premade squares with routines and activities for a typical day. Cut out the squares and attach them to a file folder or bulletin board with Velcro. Use the blank squares to include your own customized activities. Start each day by reviewing your schedule together with children! Post it in a place where children can see it and look back on it as a reminder throughout the day.
