This is time for messy play! Oats, rice crispies, shaving foam, paint, sticking and lots more – along with activities to display in our room. Nappy change time.

A fruit snack is offered along with a small beaker of cow’s milk, and/or water

Afternoon


12.30pm
Hands and faces are washed and then it’s nappy change time. The children are then settled down for their sleep

Afternoon snack is given once your child has woken from their sleep. This snack is usually a plain biscuit with a small beaker of cow’s milk, and/or water

Free play on the carpet and hard floor areas. We encourage the children to choose what they would like to play with and to tidy away before they get something else out. The staff will use this time and throughout the day to record observations of your child

The children get down from the table and we often free-flow through the room, exploring toys and playing, with staff support. In the warmer months we may go out into the garden. As the nursery gets quieter towards the end of the day, we play with children from other rooms in the library or another room
