Daily activities are a combination of child-lead and adult-directed experiences.
On arrivial each child is encouraged to recognise their name card on the registration table and take it to their peg. At the end of each session your child’s creations will be available to take home.
Once a session is in progress, the door is locked, so please ring the bell to be let in if you need to return before the end of the session.
Should you wish someone else to collect your child, please inform a member of staff at the start of the session. Details of the person collecting your child and your authority to do so will be recorded in the Collection Book, along with a ‘child specific’ password to be used on collection.
Aprons are provided for craft activities, but please send your child in suitable clothing. We encourage your child to be as independent as possible so we suggest you dress your child in easily managed clothes for toileting.
The children usually play outside for part of the morning so please ensure in summer your child has a sun hat and sunscreen is applied at home and in winter a warm coat, hat and gloves and Wellington boots. If your child wears Wellington boots to the session, please bring alternative footwear with you as these are not suitable for playing on the climbing frame and are uncomfortable worn indoors all morning.
Nappies/pull ups and wipes are to be provided at each session, by parents in a named bag where applicable. We are happy to work with parents when toilet training becomes applicable
