} }Pre-School/Pre-K is a school for pookies, just like in real life. They can be called daycares or nurseries. The Pre-School will be in someones igloo and will be decorated to make it look pretty and fun!
Going to Pre-School
Pre-School will start whenever the owner of the Pre-School is online and avaliable. Usually there is a game hour before Pre-School starts. Mumus prepare their pookies and drop them off at the Pre-School a few minutes before the opening time.
At Pre-School pookies learn and chat with friends. They will have playtime and nap time. They will also have a few classes so they can learn.
This is a regular timetable of a pookie's day at Pre-School:
|The Classes||What Pookies Do During Classes|
|Arrival||Pookies arrive at Pre-School. Classes begin a few minutes later. There is sometimes early care if you have to drop off your pookie early.|
|Circle Time||A lot of things can happen at circle time like stories, games, songs, dances, activities, or even special things such as show and tell.|
|Math Time||The teachers teach the pookies how to count and basic math problems. As the grades go higher, pookies will learn division and multiplication.|
|Play Time||The pookies get to play with the toys in the Pre-School or go outside. Prior to playtime they get a small snack provided by the school.|
|Read Time||Pookies will gather around the teacher as he/she reads a book. They may also learn about the alphabet and how each letter sounds.|
|Table Time (or Centers)||The pookies are split up into groups and do separate things at the different tables. Sometimes the groups will switch to a different table.|
|Lunch Time||The pookies eat lunch and have a little bit of time to run around.|
|Nap Time||The pookies have a nap.|
|Color Time||The pookies learn their colors and learn how to make a rainbow.|
|Free Time||The pookies can do whatever they feel like doing.|
|Art Time||The pookies make arts and crafts. They can also bring them home to their fam fams.|
|Dissmisal Time||The pookies are picked up from school by their parents or they either go to aftercare or they ride the bus.|
Holidays, Parties & Illness
Every once in a while, a pookie may feel ill or need to miss school. Sometimes, the school will be closed so the pookies can have a bit of time off. They even leave in the middle of Pre-School for Illness or a doctor/dentist appointment.
Main article: Illnesses
If pookies are ill then they will usually tell their teacher. If they are ill, other actions may be:
- Throwing up.
- Complaining about it
- Having a tummy ache
- Sneezing, wheezing, sniffing, moaning or coughing
- Turning pale
- Having a headache or a sore/infected throat
- Developing a rash
If your fam fam goes on vacation when there is still school, the teacher will usually let the pookie go out of school for the vacation. If the school is closing for a holiday, the mumu or duh duh will be notified a few days prior to the holiday.
Sometimes at Pre-School, the class will have a party! Parties mainly occur during special events like a birthday, Halloween, Christmas or Graduation.
