Our Nursery Daily Routine

Here at Little Blessings we plan each day to help grow and nurture our children.  Everything that we do, from the meals that we provide to the activities that we set out, is created to increase your child's confidence, imagination and knowledge.

Although each day is different we do follow a similar structure shown below.

A Typical Day for your Child

opening

6:00am   Opening Time

Time to wake up and get ready for the busy day before us.  Arrive here as early as 6:00am, earlier than any other nursery

breakfast

6:00-8:30   Breakfast

Breakfast is served: wake up early to enjoy the selection of early morning meals we have on offer

free play

8:30-10:00 Free Play

Here your child gets to express themselves and play with other children at their own speed and pace.  They will partake in a range of activities of their choosing.  They will also learn new activities from other children.  Your child will have free play on multiple occasions throughout the day.

snack time

10:00-10:30 Snack Time

A quick snack to boost their energy before lunch time.  Consisting of fruits and crackers.  Fruits are also available throughout for the children to choose when they wish.

structured learning

10:30-11:00 Structured Learning

Here the child's key worker (main carer) will plan an activity around the child's interest to help develop the different areas of learning.  Click here to find out more about what they learn.  Structured learning also takes place in the afternoon, right after tea time.

lunch time

12:00-12:30 Lunch time

Mmmm nothing beats a nice home cooked meal.  Your child will get to eat one of our healthy and diverse meals to keep them going.  Find out more about our nutrition and meals here.

sleep time 1

12:30-2:00 Sleep time

After that big meal and a long day of playing it is time to rest, and rejuvenate our energy.

circle time

2:30-3:00 Circle Time

Time to sing or read a story.  All the children sit in a circle in our book area and enjoy one of these activities.  Circle time happens twice in the day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon.

tea time

3:00-3:30 Tea Time

The final big meal of the day.  Another tantalising meal for your child to enjoy.  See our sample menu here

home time

6:30pm Home Time

That's it.  After a long day of fun, learning and play it's time to go home :(.  At this time a member of staff will share with you any information about their day, and update you with their progress here. Then just take them home ready for another exciting time the next day.
