Daily Routines


Your child will follow the same routine each day. This has been planned to ensure they have experience of free play, small group work and being part of a larger group.  We encourage all children to access our nursery environment independently and make choices; we talk to them about what they are doing, extending their experiences and knowledge and developing new skills.
