A Day In The Life

Our babies and toddlers have fun-packed days at Nursery. Below is the basic daily routine we follow, adapted for each age group to ensure we provide a wide variety of stimulating and exciting activities.

We are open for 50 weeks of the year, from 8.00am-6.00pm every weekday.

8.00am Nursery opens. Children arrive and enjoy fun activities whilst saying hello to their friends and settling into the day.
8.30am Breakfast. A healthy and nutritious start to the day for those with us before 9.00am.
9.00am-11.30am  Play time: fun activities designed to develop communication, langauge and literacy skills.
11.30am-12.15pm Lunch time. Prepared by our own Nursery chef, a healthy lunch whilst developing new tastes and social skills.
12.15pm- 1.30pm Sleep and quiet activities. Sleep time for our littlest friends and quiet time for those a little bit older.
1.30pm- 3.40pm Play time. An afternoon of both spontaneous fun play and planned activities, including playing outside and exploring our beautiful school campus.
3.45pm Afternoon tea. Hungry after all the excitement, a healthy snack to power us through the afternoon.
4.15pm Play time. Lots more fun to be had including messy play and sensory and rhythm development.
5.30pm Preparation for home time. Settling time for children after such a busy day.
6.00pm Nursery closes
