The Importance of Routine
We believe that children feel secure and achieve more when they
are provided with a good structure to their daily activities.
Meals, rest times, drop off and pick ups are clear markers
around which fun and stimulating activities are planned. However,
we are child-led  in many of our activities and do not adhere
rigidly to routine at the expense of developmental need. Some
days may have a particular theme which will depend upon your
child's age, interest and developmental need. eg. nature, cooking,
safety (road,fire, in public places, water etc); pets, festivals,
family and national celebrations, going to the doctor/dentist,
music, sport etc. Other days are unplanned and depend upon the
weather and/or your child's spontaneity. Assume most days are
"messy days" and please provide old clothes!
