We make sure every day at Boys & Girls Nursery is full of learning, discovery and more importantly lots of fun. Everything that you see below is included in your fees – the freshly cooked meals, the music classes and even the French lessons!
This is one of the busiest times during the day as children arrive from 8.00am to settle in and have breakfast. There is a wide choice of cereals available and the children all sit down together so you can leave them in the knowledge that they are happy and ready to start the day with their friends.
After breakfast the fun really starts, the staff at Boys & Girls Nursery encourage all of the children to join in with lots of activities in the different zones around each room. From messy play, a sports session with Challenge Sport Education, a Tiny Mites or Dinky Dancers music session, fun in the construction area or even a French lesson for Pre-School – there is always something to keep everybody busy. To make sure every child develops to their full potential we follow the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum which is a Government framework focusing on the development and learning for children from birth up to the age of five.
Drinks are offered regularly throughout the day at Boys & Girls Nursery but all that exploration and discovery can make a little one hungry so everyone is given a mid-morning snack too.
A homemade, two-course hot lunch is served at 11.30am and everyone sits together at the table to enjoy it – even the staff! To ensure the children get all the vitamins and minerals they need from a healthy diet, the main course is always served with vegetables – we also “hide” vegetables in some dishes which means that even fussy eaters get the nutrition they need.
All that fun and learning can be exhausting, so there is a quiet area in every room so that every child can get as much rest as they need. We know that younger Babies will need lots of sleep so every baby in the baby-room has their own cot and sheets. Our Toddlers also use this time to have a nap while our Pre-School tend to enjoy some quieter activities. This is the quietest time in the nursery so if you are coming to collect your little one from a morning session or are dropping off for an afternoon session please remember to tiptoe!
Boys & Girls Nursery staff plan all activities carefully balancing structured play and child-led fun, where children choose what they want to do. No matter how old your child is, we make sure all learning at Boys & Girls Nursery is fun and stimulating.
At 3.30pm the children sit down to a two-course tea which is a little lighter than lunch but just as tasty.
We wouldn’t want anyone getting hungry on the way home so we offer an afternoon snack to keep rumbling tummies at bay.
So that you don’t miss out on what your child has enjoyed during their stay at Boys & Girls Nursery, you will be given a daily report card that details all the activities they have enjoyed, the meals they have eaten and when they have had a nap. You can also use this time to catch up with their Key Person and have a look through their learning portfolio.
