A day in our Daycare

A typical day goes like this….

Breakfast

Children arriving from 7.30 will be offered a choice of breakfast cereal, porridge and toast with various toppings. We encourage independence at meal times. Children pour their own cereal and milk, add butter and jam to their toast, and decide on the portion they wish to eat. They also tidy up after themselves.

The Curriculum

Our curriculum is based on independent play, child led activities driven by emergent interests. Our teachers actively observe the interests of the children and create activities around these interests. Children are encouraged to speak about something exciting they did at home and we use this information to create songs, activities, role play and crafts based on the Childrens’ experience.
Our curriculum is highly motivated through choice. Every experience in the classroom is based around the Childs choice and their directions. We believe children have the right to choose to engage in the activities that most interest them. We provide them with the tools to express themselves freely through art and crafts. We encourage decision making, problem solving and self-regulation. Giving children choices allows them to feel confident and self-assured.

Our Beautiful Garden

Whenever possible Full Day Care children will spend part of their morning and afternoon in the garden. Garden time is a mix of observed free play and organised play. The outdoors is one of the best learning environments for children, providing opportunities for play, movement, communication and sensory experience on a much greater scale than indoors. Outdoor play also enables children to enjoy the natural environment and exposes children to physical activity, fresh air and natural light.

Snack Time

Before snack is served children are encouraged to tidy up their activities and to wash and dry their hands. Most days snack is served in large serving bowls and children then serve themselves choosing the portion of food that they require. Seconds are always available. Sometimes children will be involved in preparing the snack; e.g. making wraps or home-made pizza.

Circle Time

Children wind down with circle time and story time. If children are tired, they can use the day beds or cosy area to rest.

Dinner Time

Dinner is served at approximately 2.45pm and all meals contain healthy, nourishing fresh ingredients, while appealing to children’s tastes. Like at breakfast and snack, children are encouraged to serve themselves. We allow for choices, and ensure cultural and dietary needs are met.

Tea Time

Tea-time is at 4.45p and children are involved in preparing their own sandwiches or crackers with a selections or fillings/toppings. Fruit, berries and vegetable sticks are available to children throughout the day, as well as drinks.

At Home Time

At home time we try to ensure that parents speak to their child’s key carer every day. We also use the Little Vista App to communicate with parents. This app will update parents on children’s meals, activities, toilet habits, sleep and any incidents that may occur throughout the day. Parents receive regular photos and observations from their child’s key carer. Parents can also use the app to communicate with both teachers and managers of the creche.

Siblings

It is not unusual to have siblings in Full Day Care and Afterschool Club and we ensure siblings spend time together during the day.
