The Children's Day:

The children are arriving and leaving nursery at different times during the day but each child is used to their own routine. This is an example of how a normal day may go!


When circle is mentioned this is a group activity. In the Circle time the children may do any of the following songs, rhymes, action songs,stories, discuss topics, weather and events. Circle times are also spilt into to age groups-  2year olds and 3/4year olds.



Outdoor play: The children have access to outdoor play daily all year round. In the winter, we ask that they have wellington boots as the garden gets very muddy! Also warm clothing- Coat, hat, scarf and gloves.
