Our Activities

We do vary and extend our activities for each child’s individual needs, we link them with their own home environment experiences. This gives all of the children a wealth of opportunity to explore whilst having time to learn through play with others respectively as well as becoming ‘independent.’ We offer ‘wow’ factor to our activities, this encourages our children to engage.
We ask the children to participate by helping to set up for snack/meal times, clearing up and cleaning tables, this is encouraged after all of the activities to guide them on how to take care of their environment. We also believe they begin to understand their own responsibilities as well as inspiring them to have fun.
We offer flexible and structured activities.
Structured Activities – include planned activities covering the EYFS Curriculum within the Prime Areas and the Specific Areas. This is linked to what is happening at their home as well as linking with our Monthly Themes for the activities to encourage variety.
Flexible – includes free play of their own choices and their own likes. We promote physicality though outdoor activities on a large scale curriculum, this is set for the whole day.
