Our setting’s timetable and routines
Our setting believes that care and education are equally important in the experience which we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the day in the setting are provided in ways that:

Lunch Club Sessions
Available for children attending either the morning, afternoon and/or all day sessions. Sessions should be pre-booked and children should bring their own, clearly labelled packed lunch.
Days - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
Time - 12.00pm - 1.00pm
Cost - £4.50 (for eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds receiving nursery grant funding, lunch clubs can be included within the 15/30 hour free entitlement).
We organise our sessions so that the children can choose from, and work at, a range of activities and, in doing so, build up their ability to select and work through a task to its completion.
The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led small and large group activities which introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills, as well as helping them to learn to work with others.
Outdoor activities contribute to children’s health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them. The children have the opportunity, and are encouraged, to take part in outdoor child-chosen and adult-led activities, as well as those provided in the indoor playroom.
