Our Day

Throughout the day a wide range of play and learning activities are available for all ages. We adopt a free flow play environment and encourage all children to be involved in all activities that they are interested in both indoors and out.

The topics we do are based on the children’s interests and needs. Staff plan both adult led activities and child initiated ones taking into account the age and stage of development of each child which helps them to learn new skills.

The Morning session lasts from 8am until 1pm.

8.00am - Nursery opens and parents and children are welcomed by the staff. Parents and carers have an opportunity to talk to staff and pass on any messages about their child.

9.30am - Snack time. We provide a snack for all children on a morning which will either be toast, crumpets, pancakes, etc or cereal. Drinks of milk and water are provided at both snack times and children are encouraged to drink water throughout the day from water bottles/cups which are provided from home.

12.00 - Lunch is made every day in the Explore library's onsite kitchen by Bev, our Nursery cook. Bev prepares a healthy home cooked, well balanced two course meal (examples include spaghetti bolognese, roast dinner, fish and chips. Puddings include fruit and yoghurt, sponge and custard, apple pie and ice cream). All diets and special food requirements can be catered for.
