A Typical Day


Our activities are based on the children’s interests and education/development needs. We also incorporate daily adult lead activities, to further build on children’s knowledge and understanding. 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.
