A typical Nursery day
Every day offers something different with many specialist-taught activities including French, Music, PE and, for the Adventurers, Forest School. Nursery children also have full access to our outdoor play areas, as well as a range of facilities within the school such as the sports hall, exposing them to a huge variety of experiences and opportunities.
8 – 8.25am
Children are welcomed into the nursery by the team. Parents can use our kiss ‘n’ drop service at the front gate or walk children to nursery themselves. Free-flow activities are set up so children can settle at their own pace.
8.25 – 10.30am
Discoverers, Explorers and Adventurers separate into groups to take part in a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities.
10.30 – 11.30am
Additional activities take place with specialist teachers, such as Music or PE. On returning to the Nursery, all children can access our outside areas together.
11.30am – 12noon
Our morning children have story time and a biscuit (made on-site by our school chef), before leaving at noon.
11.40am – 1pm
Children who stay all day have lunch in the dining hall with the rest of the school, then have the opportunity to play outside on the large-scale equipment.
12.30 – approx 2pm
Nap time for the children who require a sleep. At 1pm some children are collected to go home.
1 – 2.20pm
Independent free-flow and adult-led activities continue from the morning. Afternoons are more relaxed as many children are tired from the morning session!
2.20 – 3pm
Tidy-up time is followed by a story and a biscuit, then getting ready to go home.
3 – 3.15pm/3.30pm/4pm
Sibling care is provided for children with siblings across the school. We look after children in nursery until 3.30 then move to pre-prep until 4pm, when older siblings finish, to enable parents to collect all children together.
3.30 – 6pm
Children can go to After-School Club for an additional charge.
