Our Daily Routine

Our adaptable routine gives us the flexibility to create more time for activities or outdoor learning, walks and visits if we feel they are beneficial to the children’s enjoyment and development. We do, however, maintain regular routines to assist the settling process and to give reassurance to the children who need it.

Our children play in a range of situations such as 1:1, small or large group and whole nursery; this provides mutual benefits where the younger ages learn from their observation of the older children whilst the older children take pride in responsibility and helping the little ones. Time is also set aside for the children to participate in age-related activities with their peers.

Our key person system (every child has a key member of staff who supports their family during the transition into the nursery and beyond) allows for the tracking of development and progress, making sure each child is getting the opportunities they need to reach their full potential. Focused group activities led by the key staff mean that more defined learning opportunities or greater direction, support or extension can be achieved with the daily routines.
