A Typical Session

We believe that children learn best through self directed play. We allow children numerous opportunities for free flow play where children can mix with friends of different ages and flow between both rooms and the outdoor learning environment. This promotes independence, allows them to experience a variety of activities and also enables them to learn from their peers. We also have some directed time where children sit down together. This promotes speaking and listening and adult led learning opportunities.

Typical morning and afternoon sessions are shown below.
