Day to Day
The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum provides the basis of our educational planning: the children’s own interests, imaginations and needs provide the inspiration for how we deliver that education.
With that in mind, a typical pre-school day will begin, in common with the rest of the Junior School, at 8, when breakfast is available and the children enjoy some table-top and carpet activities before registration and perhaps Assembly at 8.50.
The children’s day will regularly include reading and phonic work, singing, stories and rhymes, art and craft, indoor and outdoor play, and other planned activities.
Lunch in the main dining hall is followed by teeth cleaning.
Story-time brings the “working” day to an end at 4, but the children are welcome to stay on for tea until 4.45, when our stay-and-play session caters for those children who are collected at 6.
