Nursery Daily Routine Can Anyone Share Theres?


Recommended Posts

We are pulling our hair out- we've all lost the plot and on Summer term overload- and everyone knows how that feels dont you!

 

Our routine seems like organised chaos can anyone share there as we seem to have lost sight of what we are doing!

 

thanks

As long as the chaos is organised, why worry!!!

 

Our main nursery sessions operate as follows

9am - admission and free play until 11.30 (rolling snack operates from 9-9.45) This involves indoor and outdoor play

11.30 - Group time

11.45 Lunch and independent reading til afternoon session starts

12.30 Admission and free play until 2.15

2.15 Tidy up

2.25 group snack

2.40 Group time

3.00 home time

 

In the Summer term we add in 'school club' where we start preparing them for school activities

 

We find this all works well as the children have loads of time to become engrossed in their play

Stories would go on throughout the morning - there is usually an adult in the book corner reading to 1 or a few children- songs etc would be during our group time- also after tidying up the children- sit down as a group for a few minutes before going into lunch (length of time depends on how long they have taken to tidy up) we would then read any WOWs, maybe sing a song etc. Any focused activities would be done for those that wish to do it during the free play. Staff will cover any next steps with the children whilst they are playing. We rarely stop the session for organised stuff- I suppose for someone walking in, it may look like absolute chaos however we know what we are doing and are in control (well sometimes!!)

Approx routine:

 

7-8am Breakfast club

8-1145am Free flow play between garden and indoors, story/singing and snack at some point between these times

1145am Tidy up, wash hands

12 Lunch

1230-345 Free flow play between garden and indoors, milk and biscuit at some point (usually 2ish)

345 Tidy up, wash hands

400pm Tea

430-6 Free play and home

 

We have tried and tried to do a rolling snack but it just does not work in our setting :( We don't have a 'sit down' tea though - they make their own, eat it and off they go again as soon as they are finished
