Whatever time your child arrives at nursery, they will be greeted by our friendly team and made to feel welcome. We will encourage the children to wave goodbye, to help reassure them that you will be returning later in the day.
(If you arrive between 7:30 and 9.00am you will go into our main nursery, where the children are all together enjoying breakfast, before splitting into groups to go into the rooms for their daily routine.)
The rooms are all set up to provide a ‘free flow’ routine. This means the children can choose to participate in purposeful play activities of their choice inside or out.
At around 10.00 am the children are offered a snack consisting of fruit, milk and water. Children then return to playing. There are activities throughout the morning, both spontaneous and planned, all in line with your child’s interest and development.
At 12.00noon some children will go home for the day, whilst others will stay and have a healthy home cooked lunch with their friends. The children sit with adult support at the table (or in high chairs). During this time the children are encouraged to try new foods and develop their social skills.
In the afternoon at 1pm our afternoon children arrive and start their afternoon of fun filled learning and others will settle down for a nap (each child is provided with their own bed mat and blankets, which the nursery launders) our babies have cots or individual sleep mats provided.
At around 2.30pm we offer another snack of fruit, milk and water, which the children can access when they are ready. There is also free flow between the inside and outside and various activities for the children to access, again supporting and developing individual learning. Tea time is at 4 o’clock, by this time some children have gone home for the day. Children here after 4pm are offered a delicious light tea, prepared freshly on the premises. After tea its time for some more play inside and out with activities to keep them learning until it is time to go home.
Our school day begins with a smile and a handshake.
