The Nursery Day

The nursery now opens at 7.00am.
All children who arrive between 7.00am and 7.45am are kept together in the Cubs room, where they enjoy a relaxed and calm environment with a free choice of the toys and games.
At 7.45am the After School and Lions children are taken to their room where they can eat their breakfast, take part in quiet activities or for the older children may give them an opportunity to carry out some homework or reading.
At 8am breakfast is served either in the chidren’s own rooms.
Lunch is served at 11.30am.  The children eat in their own rooms, sitting at the table (except for the kittens) as a family with the members of staff.  We encourage the children to use cutlery appropriate to their development and as they progress into the pre-school room we also encourage them to lay their own place setting.
The staff sit at the table with the children as we feel it is a social occasion whereby the children can learn a great deal by example.  The staff talk to the children during the meal and encourage quiet discussion amongst the children.
The meals are all freshly prepared on the premises and all dietary requirements can be catered for.  Some examples of the meals we offer our children are:
Breakfast: Cereal or toast
Snacks: Fresh fruit, crackers & cheese, dried fruit, vegetable crudités etc.
Lunch: Farm House Mince, Ratatouille, Thai Green Curry, Pork Stroganoff, Tuna Bake and Vegetables etc
Puddings: Fruit crumble, Fruit Fool, Summer Fruit salad, Jam Croissant Pudding, etc.
Tea: Sausage Rolls, Cauliflower Cheese, Ham Salad Tortillas, Savoury Rice
At approximately 5.30pm all the children join together in the Cubs room again where they participate in singing and story time.

The nursery closes at 6.00p
