All Day Session: 9.00am – 3.00pm
The gate opens and the children come in with their parents. They are encouraged to take their coats off independently and hang them up. They self-register by choosing their name label from the wall. They say goodbye to their adult and are then free to choose their learning from activities that have been well planned by the nursery staff. The adults have specific key children that they are responsible for and who observe and record achievements for the child’s learning journey’s.
The outside environment is used daily, whatever the weather, to allow the children the freedom to be physical, run and jump, ride bikes etc and explore the elements. Some children will work alongside an adult on a specific activity.
The children are encouraged to eat healthily during snack time. They have a daily choice of fruit, bagels, toast or crumpets with either milk or water. The children’s independence is encouraged as they are responsible for washing up their own cup and plate.
The children gather together for story time where they learn to sit and listen to our favourite stories or, perhaps, to sing songs and rhymes.
The session ends when the parents come to the door to collect their children. Some children stay for lunch which they eat alongside the staff in the nursery.
