A Typical Day For Your Child At Playtime


Throughout the day the children are offered many opportunites to be independent, be able to explore and have the chance to be creative.

All our nurseries have the same structure of routine throughout but each 'room' will plan its day to offer the children developmental activites and experiences based on each childs individual needs.

For example in our baby room the day is much less structured and so designed to meet the individual needs and routines of all the babies in our care.

Below is a 'typical day' of how your child will spend their time with us: -

  • 7.30am: Open ..... Children welcomed, say good bye to Mum or Dad and have breakfast and enjoy free play.
