A Typical Day

This is an example of a typical day in my care. It does change from day to day, depending on the activities we are doing, any outings, trips or clubs that are planned, and on each individual child and their needs.

8.00am   Children arrive and breakfast

8.30am   School run

9.30am   Free play and set activity

10.30am Snack time

11.00am Toilet and nappy change

11.15am Outside play

12.00pm Lunch time

12.30pm Quiet time and sleep time

2.00pm   Snack time

2.30pm   Toilet and nappy changes

3.00pm   School pickup

3.30pm   Free play

4.30pm   Toilet and nappy changes

5.00pm   Dinner

5.30pm   Story, book, DVD or TV

6.00pm   Home time

Toilet and nappy changes are planned throughout the day, but if a child needs the toilet or their nappy changed beforehand, I will do so. Outside ply will depend upon weather, and will either be in the garden or local parks. When small children are sleeping, the older children will be either sitting quietly reading, playing or with a DVD.
