Free Preschool Classroom Rules Printable

Developing and maintaining a set of rules that are expected to be observed is an important part of classroom management. Clearly displaying those rules in your room also serves as a source of evidence for two criterion of NAEYC’s Early Childhood Program Standards and Accreditation Criteria & Guidance for Assessment.

2.E.03

Children have opportunities to become familiar with print. They are actively involved in making sense of print, and they have opportunities to become familiar with, recognize, and use print that is accessible throughout the classroom:

a) Items belonging to a child are labeled with his or her name.
b) Materials are labeled.
c) Print throughout the classroom. Print is used to describe some rules and routines. Hand washing instructions count if they are developmentally appropriate and posted where children can see them.
d) Teaching staff help children recognize print and connect it to spoken word.


2.L.06

Children have varied opportunities to engage in discussions about

a) fairness,
b) friendship,
c) responsibility,
d) authority, and
e) differences

Evidence includes things such as: books about these issues, anecdotal notes, posted class rules. Consider children’s general responses to, and compliance with, teaching staff requests and class rules; classroom jobs and children’s participation in keeping the classroom neat and clean; conflict resolution; and teaching staff’s support in helping children negotiate problems.

This free printable is a written and visual picture reminder of classroom rules. Be sure to discuss these with your children during group. Ask your preschoolers why they think each rule is important and encourage them to talk about what might happen if these guidelines are not followed (e.g., too much noise, messy classroom, boo-boos, hurt feelings, etc.) Afterward, display at the children’s eye level. In the picture above, you can see that I have posted our rules on the side of a bookshelf near my reading area.

Honestly, #6 is our most followed rule. And THAT makes me happy.

I recommend printing this out on cardstock and, for extra durability, lamination.
