A Day in Little School

As you might expect, Little School is a miniature version of Greenfield School in both atmosphere and productivity. Our smallest children are kept very busy, with a schedule of activities and rest time that ensures they get the most out of every day they spend with us.

The 7 Areas of Learning

During each day, all 7 areas of learning are available through teacher-led activities and continuous activities. The 7 areas of learning are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design.

Daily Schedule

Below is an example of what a day in Little School might look like:

07:30 Arrival/Breakfast. A delicious selection of cereal, crumpets, toast and toppings.
09:00 Busy Fingers session focussing on fine motor skills
10:00 Snack time. Fruit three times per week, fresh bread once per week and a biscuit once per week.
10:30 A jazzy, jangly music session with one of our specialist music staff.
12:00 Lunch time – will it be a delicious curry or yummy bolognese?
12:30 Phew! Time for a rest. After a nap, there is time for child-led learning and transitional free-play with our many interesting resources and equipment.
14:30 Snack time
15:00 Outdoor play or a buggy & toddler walk around the grounds/forest school
16:00 Afternoon tea – will it be vegetable tagine, chilli con carne or everyone’s favourite: fish fingers!
16:30-18:00 Home time. The children enjoy more indoor/outdoor free play whilst they wait for home time. Wherever possible, your child’s key person will provide an in-person handover and let you know what they have been up to.

Your child’s daily care diary will be updated on Tapestry at the end of each day.
