Daily Routine & Session Times
Session times are 9.30am – 12 noon daily (term-time only)
The daily routine provides children with a sense of security and reassurance while the choice of activities allows them independence.
9:30-9:40 Announcements and the hello song with parents and carers
9:40-11:20 Free flow activities and play. We have many different activities from the home corner, playdough, painting, construction, reading corner, puzzles, maths table and outside play.
10:30-11:15 Snack time in small groups
11:20 Tidy up time
11:30-12:00 Independent reading time, followed by songs, games, nursery rhymes and books on the carpet.
The playschool staff are always ready to have a chat after the session about your child's day and their progress. Each family will meet up with their key worker once per term to have a look at some photos and discuss the child's progress in depth.
Children in the Early Years have a need to explore, discover and have new experiences: we love to provide an environment of exploration and learning at the playschool.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” Fred Rogers
Playschool follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework, which sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. In addition to supporting children’s communication and language skills, physical development and personal, social and emotional development, we strive to create a play-based environment which stimulates children’s natural curiousity and love of learning. As children develop and show their natural interests, we help them to to investigate maths, literacy, artistic expression and the world through their favourite topics.
