Typical Day

Morning session 08:45 -11:45 & Afternoon session 13:00 -15:30

Each session can hold up to 18 children of mixed ages of 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

The children can enjoy free flow play - based learning over two large, fully equipped rooms plus a large outside area, with a sheltered space. During this time children will enjoy the independence of making choices and discovering their own likes and dislikes. There are a variety of resources that the children can choose from such as being creative in many ways, social play, constructive play or fantasy play to name a few. As the Pre-School team have high regard for children having an 'active session' this could include making the most of the varied equipment in the garden or making use of a large hall where we often hold indoor active sessions.

The Pre-School team also use a key person system to monitor and record children's achievements, by way of learning journeys. From time to time during each session there may be some adult led learning in small groups or on a one to one basis. This will allow a child to flourish their learning even further.

During each session there is an offer of a healthy snack such as fruit, vegetables, breadsticks, cereal or toast plus water or milk to drink.
