A typical day

Every day at Footprints is special

Each day the nursery is set up to allow children full access to a wide range of stimulating activities to engage their minds and keep them active.  We know how important it is for young minds and bodies to be challenged and stimulated. We have the added benefit of external practitioners who come on a weekly basis to provide language, sports skills and singing / music lessons. At all times children are supported and guided whilst allowing them to develop independence and confidence with these new skills.

The timetable for a typical day

This is an example of a typical day:

08:00 Nursery Opens
08:00 - 08:45 Breakfast
09:00 - 12:00 Inside or outside activities (snack during morning activities)
12:00 Lunchtime
13:00 - 14:30 Younger years nap time
13:00 - 16:00 Inside or outside activities
16:00 Teatime
17:00 Inside or outside activities
18:00 Nursery closes

Parents are welcome to drop off their child or pick up their child at any time but we would ask that if you are going to drop off after 9am or pick up earlier than 5pm you inform staff in your child's room.

Indoor and outdoor space

In all of our nursery rooms children are encouraged to use the indoor and outdoor space as much as possible. With free flow into outside areas in all but the worst weather conditions. As we encourage outside activity all year-round, we do ask parents to ensure their children come to nursery in appropriate clothes for the weather and time of year. Visit the 'what to bring' section for more details.

Healthy food and drinks included

Where children will be staying for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we ask that parents do not provide any food or snacks from home. We have a dedicated on-site kitchen provides fresh daily meals and snacks for the children.
