What did you do today?
When children come home at the end of the day, the question they're asked as they scurry to play is, "Tell me what you did today?”
And the answer they give makes you sigh with dismay.
"Nothing, I did nothing today!"
Perhaps nothing means that I played with blocks,
Or counted to ten,
Or sorted some rocks.
Maybe I painted a picture of red and blue
Or heard a story of a mouse that flew.
Maybe I watched two gerbils eat today,
Or went outside on the swings to play.
Maybe today was the very first time
That my scissors followed a very straight line.
Maybe I lead a song from beginning to end,
Or played with a special brand new friend.
When you're in preschool and your heart has wings, "Nothing" can mean so many things!!
Our children quickly become confident learners and enjoy experiencing all the nursery has to offer.
Each room has an individual daily routine suited to the needs of the children. Children are involved in free play, adult led play, planned activities and child initiated activities. Each week and month activities are planned around a different theme and children are encouraged to discuss what they know about the theme and develop skills to investigate and find out more. Play is at the heart of all of our learning. Our activities are based inside and outside the playrooms and this helps as children progress through the Nursery.
During the week children are encouraged to learn new skills which are shaped through monitoring of their development and providing suitable opportunities for this to occur during play and activities. In all areas of the Nursery the day begins with registration and free play. During the day children join in Key Person circle time activities which tailored to meet the needs of individual children.
Activities cover all areas of learning and are developed around this theme and the development needs of the children. Follow on planned and free play opportunities run throughout the day and are developed through children’s interests.
If you would like any further information on our nursery day, please see any member of staff who will be more than happy to have a chat.
