Timetable and Routines

Our timetable and routines

We believe that care and education are equally important in the experience which we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the preschool's sessions are provided in ways that:

• help each child to feel that they are a valued member of the preschool
• ensure the safety of each child • help children to gain from the social experience of being part of a group
• provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning

The day

The pre-school organises the day so that children can take part in a variety of child-chosen and adult-led activities. These take account of children's changing energy levels throughout the day.

We cater for children's individual needs for rest and quiet activities during the day.

Outdoor activities contribute to children's health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them.


Snacks and meals

The preschool makes snacks and meals a sociable time at which children and adults eat together. We plan the menus for snacks to ensure provision of healthy and nutritious food. Please provide us with any information about your child's dietary requirements.

We offer the children a hot lunch (at an additional fee) provided through the School meal facility. The meals are cooked on North Hinksey Primary site and we collect them daily, to be eaten in the preschool building, Or if your child prefers please provide a healthy packed lunch.
