Our routine is very flexible and very much based on the children's needs. However, as we feel it is very important at an early age to establish routines we have a very flexible timetable which is as follows...
 
  • Welcome
  • Adult supported free play (may include an adult led activity)
  • Snack / Lunch - Staff always sit with the children and share this very important social time.
  • Adult supported free play (may include an adult led activity)
  • Outdoor play (we make the most of our outdoors at all times)
  • Home
  • Nappies and toileting are carried out as and when needed.
 
We will often be outside for most of our session. The benefits of outdoor learning and exploration are huge.
When your child is 2 years old (at around 30 months,) their key worker will write a summary of how your child is progressing against the 
3 prime areas of learning:
·    Communication and Language
·    Physical Development
·    Personal, Social and Emotional Development
This is called the progress check at age two which can be documented with an EYFS Progress Check at Age Two Report Form.
 

Staffing
Working directly with the children every day are Mrs Amanda Coates, Mrs Jill Mossop, Miss Danielle Scott and Miss Emily Carruthers.
 

We work as part of our wider team in the Early Years and throughout school to provide 
seamless transitions into the maintained nursery and on to school life.
The Early Years Staff that the children will meet are Miss Megan O'Neil, Mrs Allison Kyffin, Miss Taylor Hardon , Miss Claire Ostle, Mrs Sarah Little, Miss Kelly Dickinson.
