At Selwyn Nursery we plan each day to nurture your child’s imagination and build their confidence through praise, recognition and support. The overall structure and rhythm of the day is designed to encourage them to flourish and naturally inspire them to love learning.
Drop off and Breakfast Time
Morning starts with the hustle and bustle of arrivals. Our nursery staff are experienced in settling children to nursery so drop off is a crucial time for you to update us on whether your child has slept or whether they have woken up upset for any reason.
The morning session starts with registration time in small groups, during registration the children will talk about the day, month and weather etc. After registration the children are able to access lots of exciting resources through continuous provision indoors and out. All these activities and resources are designed to enable them to play and explore, discover and grow, learn and understand. Every activity will be tailored to their liking and they will be encouraged to build their confidence and understanding through praise, recognition and support.
Lunch is generally around 11.15am. We place great importance in eating in ‘family’ groupings, talking about our meal, and making it a relaxing and enjoyable time for everybody. We aim to ensure your child enjoys a wide range of healthy meals.
Sleep time (shhhhhh)
Younger babies will probably need a number of sleeps during the nursery day, and as they get older this will reduce to one sleep, usually after lunch. We will always endeavour to enable your child to sleep when they want to, and will also work with you to establish a routine that suits their specific needs.
Throughout the afternoon your child will enjoy a range of activities designed to enable them to play and explore, discover and grow, learn and understand. Every activity will be tailored to their liking and they will be encouraged to build their confidence and understanding through praise, recognition and support.
At about 4.00pm the children sit down to tea, this meal consists of a snack and a pudding.
When you arrive to take your child home, our nursery staff will be available to share any information about their day, pass on any important messages and to chat with you about what they are learning and how they are progressing.
