Sample Activities Timetable

This is only a rough idea of what we might do in a week. As all the children are part-time I move the activities around to allow them all to have a range of play experiences. We also visit other places e.g. Rookery farm, garden centres, museums, library, etc. and do lots of other activities around celebrations / festivals. You will be given more detail in newsletters/diaries and my notice board. Nap times will change depending on which children are present and I try to take into account the activities the children have done at other settings and compliment them. The opportunity for outdoor play is given daily. Older children are given more choice in what they do and may want to do homework or just sit and chat to unwind after school. All children have free-play time and although activities may be on offer I do not force them to join in. Activities often stem from the children's interests and my observations so a rigid timetable is not possible but you can see the groups we currently attend on a regular basis.
