The Nursery organises its sessions so that the children can choose from – and work at – a range of activities and, in doing so, build up their ability to select and work through a task to its completion. The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led and child initiated activities, small and large group activities that introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills, as well as helping them to learn to work with others.
Outdoor activities contribute to children’s health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them. The children have the opportunity – and are encouraged – to take part in outdoor child-chosen and adult-led activities, as well as those provided in the indoor playroom.
THE NURSERY TIMETABLE AND ROUTINES
Clopton Nursery Trust believes that care and education are equally important in the experience that we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the Nursery’s session/day are provided in ways that:
- Help each child to feel safe and secure and a valued member of the Nursery.
- Ensure the safety of each child.
- Help children to gain from the social experience of being part of a group.
- Provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning.
