A 'VERY GOOD' School - ETI 2014

School Day

School begins at 8.50am each morning, when the children

enter a classroom filled with a wide range of exciting activities,

from sand and water to arts and crafts, from construction play and

role play to puzzles and games.

The children enjoy extended periods of free play throughout

the morning, including the opportunity for outdoor and

physical play in our continually developing outdoor area.

Snack is available throughout the morning, where

children choose from a wide range of healthy options

such as fruit, cereal, toast, milk and water.

After tidy up time children enjoy stories and rhymes

in the quiet room before helping to set the tables for lunch.

We all enjoy our dinner together, sitting down as a Nursery

family.  Then it's more fun either inside or outside before

we go home.
