What happens in a typical day?

During each session we have a framework to help us give your child a varied and enriching experience. The outline plan for a day is based upon the following:

  • 09.00 – Arrive and settle in
  • 09.20 – Register time and news time
  • 09.30 – Time to explore our activities, create, experience, re-enact, chat, build, problem solve, imagine …
  • 10.15 – Our café opens for the children to enjoy their snack
  • 11.00 – Small adult-led focused group times
  • 11.20 – Time to get physical, go outside, dance or get sporty
  • 12.00 – Home time for some of our friends, lunch club for others and time to welcome our afternoon arrivals.
  • 12.00 – A story, a song, a game, rhyme time, maybe exploring the toys then time for a chat with our friends over our packed lunch from home.
  • 13.00 – Time to explore our activities, create, experience, re-enact, chat, build, problem solve, imagine …

This outline is there as a base plan, our sessions are influenced by your children and their interests, needs and choices. We could have a visitor such as a lollipop person, a fire fighter or our local community police, we may be out walking to the post office or running in the park. The group may choose a song instead of a story, we actively encourage the children to help make the decisions. We balance adult led and child initiated activities. Our aim is to give them the skills to progress into school at the end of their time with us.
