Each morning, the main session begins with registration where all the children sit together with the staff. Once the register is completed, everyone talks about the day ahead, the date and weather and we sometimes do show and tell.
Then there is time for free play. Children can choose any activity, inside or outside. Staff will have set up different stations that the children can play on, if they wish.The activities available to the children change through out the year to match their ever changing environment.
Mid-morning the children are offered a healthy snack. They learn key skills during this time such as eating with their peers, spreading butter on toast, and pouring their own drink!
We spend a little of each day as ‘circle time’ for a story and a song. The children become very good at sitting still for a (little) while each day and interacting with each other and members of staff!
