The door opens at 9:15, parents are able to wait in the foyer if they arrive earlier.
|9:30||Registration and “good morning”|
|9:40 – 10:30||Table top activities and children’s choice|
Each morning three tables are set up: one with creative activities; one with maths/science activities and another with messy play. Children are invited to choose a further activity to put on the carpet. In addition children are able to free play within the preschool environment.
During this time children are encouraged to look at books by themselves or with a preschool practitioner.
|10:45||Show and tell and story time/singing|
This is circle time in which children all sit together to present their “show and tell” to their peers. We also enjoy a story that is read to the class and group singing.
Children all sit together at tables and are provided with a selection of fruit and a drink of milk or water.
|11:25 – 12:15||Free play|
This session is in the hall or the garden, encouraging physical activity.
|12:15||Morning session closes and lunchtime commences for those staying a full day (or for lunch club)|
At lunch children are sat together, during which time we are able to teach age appropriate table manners.
We are offering a lunch club as an extra from 12:15 – 1:15 at the hourly rate (dependent on age of child) Your child will need to bring a lunch box for this. These can be booked in advance or on an ‘ad-hoc’ basis and you will be billed at the end of the term. Children need to be toilet trained in order to attend.
Full day sessions/afternoons
Our afternoon session comprises much more free play, still using our table top and children’s choice activities and giving children full access to the preschool facilities. Keeping our afternoons flexible also allows us to arrange local outings in and around the village. All children need to be able to use the bathroom independently.
