We follow the ‘in the moment planning’, whereby our activities are based on the children’s interest for the day. This gives the ‘teacher’ the opportunity to explore the child’s learning in various areas, which helps to promote their learning and independence. This gives you an overview of the layout of a typical day at our nursery. Occasionally unplanned events may occur requiring a change in the routine to make the most of the eventuality.
