About the Junior playgroup
In juniors we can be very noisy and love to run around with our friends, while learning new things. Our room is registered for 16children aged from 1yr 10mths – 2yrs 10mths.
Our relationship with your child/children
Each child will be assigned a member of staff as their own key worker, who will be responsible for recording and observing your child’s milestones, and ultimately ensure your child is settled and happy whilst at nursery. Staff are always on hand to answer any questions or queries.
All about our day
Our daily routine covers a range of activities and incorporates a lot of physical play. We encourage free play to promote independence as well as allowing children to develop their problem solving skills. Our daily routine also includes time for planned activities so children can learn about shapes, colours, language and much more, these activities are formed around different themes each month.
Morning snack is at 10.30am, at this time the children will have toast, fruit. milk/water etc. Lunch time for full time children is at 1pm. Afternoon snack time is at 3.30pm.
We find junior playgroup has so much going on that our part time children don’t have time to sleep, but our children who attend fulltime may require a nap, staff will be happy to discuss this.
Nappies are changed regularly throughout the day as well as at set times.
In partnership with parents, children can be potty trained only when they are ready. Staff are at hand to discuss this matter if you have any concerns or questions.
