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.
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.
