Your Child's Day
We are open for 38 weeks a year during school term time. Opening times are 8.45am to 11.45am for morning session.
11.45am to 2.45pm for afternoon session and 8.45am to 2.45pm for a full day
The setting organises the day so that children can take part in a variety of child-chosen and adult-led activities. These take account of children's changing energy levels throughout the day. The setting caters for children's individual needs for rest and quiet activities during the day. Outdoor activities contribute to children's health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them.
Our morning session begins at 8.45 am when children arrive and are given a warm welcome by their Key workers. The morning begins with a nutritious breakfast, supplied by us in a calm relaxing atmosphere.
A variety of activities are set up ready for the children to choose from both indoors and outdoors. These include:
Book Corner, Role Play, Messy Play, Creative and writing activities, Construction and Physical Play, Music and I.C.T. Well planned activities cover all 7 areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
Children may have their mid-morning healthy snack, which we ask parents to provide. We provide 1/3 pint of milk for each child together with a personal water bottle to ensure children are fully hydrated throughout the day.
Children attending for a full 6 hour day are able to bring a healthy packed lunch from home in their own ‘grown up lunch box’. (just like big school!) .
Sleep and Rest time
Children staying for a full day are provided with a sleep and rest time in our ‘Sleep area’. This is a calming and relaxing time when children can sleep or just simply rest listening to music or story tapes with staff.
Our afternoon session begins at 11.45am. With a variety of fun activities to choose from. Children attending the afternoon session may bring in a packed lunch or a small snack of fruit.
Parents arrive to collect children and have informal feedback from Key workers on their child’s day.
