Our Daily Routine

A typical day
9am

The children come in, hang up their coat and find their name card to show ‘Who is here today’. They are then free to choose from a wide range of activities that vary daily. Each morning we choose a ‘Helper’ who performs several important jobs throughout the day.

10.30am

The children sit together for a group activity, for example a story, singing or playing musical instruments. This is followed by break-time where the children wash their hands then sit at a table in small groups and have a snack. As we aim to promote healthy eating, the snack consists of wholemeal toast, fruit, vegetables and milk (but we also have cake if it’s someone’s birthday!)

11.45am

It is ‘tidy-up time’ and the children help put away the toys and equipment.

We have another group activity then the children wash their hands and sit at a table with their Key Person to eat their lunch.

After lunch the children get ready to go home.

1.00pm:

After lunch some of the children get ready to go home.

Those remaining children continue with structured adult led activities and free play and/or play outside in a secure play area. (Weather permitting). Outdoor activities include bikes, construction resources, large dinosaurs and many more.

There is another group time before children leave at 3pm.

3.00pm:

The children get ready to go home.
