Our Daily Routines

 

Welcome Time

We welcome the parents/carers and children to the nursery. The children are encouraged to participate in self-registration.

Wake Up

and

Shake Up

We start our day with a fun and lively dance  or a yoga session. Children learn easy routines that are designed to improve balance, coordination, rhythm and timing.

Funky Fingers

After we take the class register, the children participate in a daily five-minute fine motor activity to develop their finger/hand strength and control. The activity changes every week. In the later part of the school year, we start introducing name and number writing activities.

Carpet Time

This is a teacher-led activity where children are introduced to new topics and learn new skills. It covers areas such as phonological awareness, art, investigation, the world around us and core books.

Learning Time

Learning time is our child-initiated session where children are encouraged to make decisions about what they want to do and what resources they will need, whether it is indoors or outdoors. It is their time to play, explore and try out their ideas and knowledge.

Snack Time 

and

Quiet Time

Children sit together and have a fruit and milk or water. It is a good time to promote independence and an ideal opportunity for both children and adults to have a chat about their day. Quiet time, which comes after snack, is when children are invited to explore our reading corner and browse a book or two.

Maths Time

or

Circle Time

Maths time is a teacher-led activity that focuses on numbers, space, shapes and measure. The children learn a variety of number skills including counting, subitising and comparing. Once a week, we have circle time, which includes musical games, cooperative games, talking and listening exercises, show and tell and a lot more!

Story Time 

and Singing

Children are read a story every day. We also sing some of our favourite songs and nursery rhymes.

Home Time

Children get ready to go home. Parents/carers arrive to collect them.
