Childrens Routine

Children hang their coats and leave their belongings in the main entrance hall and are greeted by a member of staff at the door.
Children are free to engage in vigorous and noisy play, challenge their physical capabilities, and experience nature with all of their senses.
All children meet in the Greeting Area where they get the opportunity to chat to their peers and adults. The adults talk about rules in playgroup and new materials available during work time for the children to explore. Children can also share news with the group.
Children plan where they want to play at work time with their key worker, e.g. “I’m going to play at the sand and painting area today.”
Children play with their peers at the different play areas.
All children and adults work together to tidy up all the toys.
Children talk to their key worker about the play areas they played at during ‘work time.’
All children wash hands before having their break. Each key worker will organize break jobs for each child, e.g. collecting the cups, knives etc.
Children sit with their key worker for break. All children are encouraged to practice self help skills, i.e. pouring their own drink, buttering their bread. The weekly break menu will be displayed in the hallway.
Each key worker will plan an activity for their key-children based on: children’s interests, new and unexplored materials, key experiences and local traditions and community experiences.
All children join together for large group time, i.e. story, songs, rhymes etc.
All children gather in the ‘Greeting Area’ and wait until parents/carers arrive.

It is important to have a daily routine in place as:

  • Children feel a sense of security and control
  • Supports initiative
  • Provides social community
  • Provides a framework for adults to observe and plan

*Each child is allocated a key worker. This is simply one member of staff who they work closely with.
