A Typical Day

Our setting believes that care and education are equally important in the experience which we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the day in the setting are provided in ways that:

- help each child to feel that she/he is a valued member of the setting;

- ensure the safety of each child;

- help children to gain from the social experience of being part of a group; and

- provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning.

The day

The setting organises the day so that children can take part in a variety of child-chosen and adult-led activities. These take account of children's changing energy levels throughout the day.

The setting caters for children's individual needs for rest and quiet activities during the day. Outdoor activities contribute to children's health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them.

So please provide weather appropriate clothing, ie, hat, gloves and a warm coat as outdoor play is a very important part of our curriculum so we will be playing out in most weather.
