A typical day

A day at Nursery is an experience rich in learning opportunities thanks to the many and varied activities that are provided for the children.

Familiar routines and patterns ensure that the children feel safe and secure as well as providing a sense of belonging, learning and fun. 

The nurturing tasks of each day (arrival, changing, mealtimes and sleep time), are planned in a way that meets the needs of each child and their family, and become an integral part of the child’s experience.
