Our routine is the same for the morning and afternoon sessions. Children participate in a variety of different adult lead activities linked to the early years curriculum and their current interests. Children are also encouraged to explore the setting freely with support from adults. Within each session we ensure children have access to the garden area regardless of the weather, children are encouraged to explore and learn about the natural environment.
Our day begins at 8am with breakfast; the children can choose from cereal, porridge, toast and fruit.
After breakfast the children will have a choice of a variety of activities covering all areas of learning.
At 10.15am we provide a healthy snack which consists of fresh fruit, healthy carbohydrate and milk.
After snack we enjoy time in the garden where we have lots of fun activities. Being outside in all types of weather encourages children to learn about the natural world.
At 12pm it is lunch time. We ask parents to provide a healthy pack lunch for their child, we can provide cold lunches if parents require this for a small charge.
