Drop off and Pick Up:
Drop Off: Children arrive at nursery for 8:50 am and are greeted by familiar staff members. They are encouraged to remove their outdoor clothing and place their belongings on their peg. The children then find their photo on the staff registration board before entering the main room.
Pick Up: Between 2:40 and 2:50 we come together for a story and short circle time. Shoes, coats and any other appropriate clothing are put on just in time for collection. We then take the children outdoors as their parents arrive to hand over all belongings, and give them an overview of their child’s day, as well as relevant information.
Just before lunch we enjoy story/ song time together and then the children wash their hands before sitting at the tables. Children have an option of a school meal or can bring a packed lunch which is then plated up by staff, ensuring that the children eat sandwiches and fruit before other items in their lunch boxes. Once they have finished, they all sit down on the carpet and share books together whilst staff clean the room ready for the afternoon session.
