Sessions are from 9.15am until 12.15pm daily.
We also offer Monday and Wednesday afternoons (for the older pre-school children), 12.15 until 3.15, term time only for 38 weeks each year.
We organise our sessions so that the children can choose from, and work at, a range of activities and in so doing, build up their ability to select and work through a task to its completion. The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led small and large group activities which introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills as well as helping them to develop friendships and social skills.
Outdoor activities contribute to children’s health as well as being a fun environment to learn in, especially for boys. We are fortunate to have a ‘free flow’ secure outside area that we call ‘the quad’ as well as a large enclosed, grassed field for the children to explore and investigate.
Snack time is an important part of each session when the children sit at the tables in their small Key Person group and have conversations about things that are important to them. A choice of milk or water is offered and a healthy snack which they choose and serve themselves. Sometimes the children will make the snack themselves through the adult led activity of the morning which is always fun.
