At the beginning of each session the children are welcomed by a member or staff as they arrive and register from 9:15am.
Following registration, the children are free to choose from a range of activities in our three play areas. As the children play, the staff support them “in the moment” with all areas of learning and development to help with the transition to school including; numeracy, drawing, letters and communication, creating enthusiasm for learning.
Children split into their colour groups with their key workers for different activities. Group time varies from day to day but usually includes some combination of physical activity, singing, writing, numeracy and phonics.
Children wash their hands before sitting with friends for a healthy snack, which each child brings in from home. Milk and water are provided in addition to their water bottles that they bring in from home.
After Snack Time the children go back to Free Play until it is time to tidy up for Whole Group Singing.
Children staying for lunch (all children on Wednesday and children staying for the afternoon session on Tuesday and Thursday) bring a packed lunch.
Every pre-school day ends with a story and music session.
