I was considering sending my one year old son to daycare, at least one day a week starting in January. But now I am think about keeping him home. But I want to set up a routine/schedule of learning activities to do daily. Does anyone have any ideas or tips for setting up my day with a one year old?

I have just bought the tunes for toddlers. I also go to the learning center stores and get music from them. Tips for attention span.... Patience~like you didn't know that already!! :) With Henry if he gets distracted I bring him back with asking how many ducks are on the page or name this color, animal. What sounds do they make.

Thank you for the info. I was thinking about music time and art time. Do you have any suggestions for fun music for toddlers? I heard some songs before that give instruction like "stand on your right foot" "now clap your hands" "now hop in place". I thought that would be fun to do but don't know who sings them.

Another question..my son doesn't sit still very well for me to read to him or at all. Any tips to help with getting him to sit still for art time or reading time?

My son attends daycare and loves it! When he is not able to go I still keep the schedule at home, here's a brief list of the things they do, maybe it will help. Art time, coloring, painting, drawing, making animals, shapes and other things to decorate with. Outside playtime. Music time, playing instruments, singing songs, dancing, playing with ribbon wands. Reading time, working on ABC and numbers.Free play time. Clean up, sing the clean up song while working. Outside time again. Lunch, snack and nap time are in there too!
Keep in mind your son has a short attention span, make sure you prep as much as possible with him helping, ie: getting all the supplies for coloring/painting. Also don't forget to have him help you clean up! they love to help and its fun when you can make a game out of it.
