Daily schedule

Each week on Friday afternoon you will receive the planned schedule and activity plan for your child’s class. In this plan we will include some practical ideas for things you can talk about and things you can do at home that will link to what we are doing in the nursery. By doing this we anticipate creating a wonderful partnership and extension of leaning between the nursery and home.


The daily schedule comprises of indoor and outdoor activities which allow for adult led and free play opportunities. Indoor activities take place in their classrooms or in the various separate communal spaces in the nursery.
