What is a typical day like?

The Nursery day and activities are designed to give children the best possible opportunities for pre-school development. The guiding principle is learning through play, and all our activities are planned to meet government-led initiatives in order to reflect the best possible practices in childcare.

The following schedule is an example of a typical day at the nursery. Some activities, such as mealtimes, follow the routine regularly, but we like to allow flexibility in other parts of the routine so that we may respond to events happening around us.
