Routine is important to the children at White Tree Preschool.
Each morning session is divided into the following activities:-
If your child is attending for full days our afternoon routine is as follows:
Lunch time is 12.15pm- 1pm
The afternoon sessions then begins. We offer a supervised rest area for children who require a nap, and free play for those who don't.
After which we will go back down to the garden(weather permitting) until collection.
When children arrive in the morning, they hang their bags/coats on their picture peg in the preschool, then select their ‘apple’ from the registration desk to hang on our ‘Apple Tree’.
Our timetable includes plenty of opportunity for free play, to ensure children have enough time to pursue their own interests within the context of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework.
Tidy up time
Your child will be encouraged to to help with tidying up the resources at the end of free play alongside the adults and their peers.
Apple Tree time
Apple tree time is our time when all the children gather together and sing our ‘hello song'. We encourage all children to come to apple tree time, and support them to join in. It may also include show and tell or a group activity.
Your child will join their freinds at the table to enjoy a mid morning snack of fruit or a nutritious carbohydrate choice, and a drink of milk or water
(all dietry requirements are attended too. Pease inform your childs keyworker)
Small Group Time
After snack time, the children go to their colour allocated small group. During small group time, the children are able to take part in a variety of activities designed to cover all areas of the Early Years Curriculum. Working in small groups gives the children the opportunity to try new things, to talk with their peers and to learn from one another and to gain in confidence.
Small group time is planned to last for approx 10-15 minute
We aim to go outside and play in our garden everyday. We have two secure areas, one with a large sand pit, a play house and a climbing frame with slide, a sensory and water area where the children are encouraged to explore by looking, feeling and smelling.
Our other secure area is an open space used for large physical play such as ride ons and balls.
