A typical Day at Broughton Under Fives

Our day

Optional Breakfast Club 8:00am- 8:30am

Morning Session: 8:30am-11:30am

Afternoon Session: 12:00pm-3:00pm


 Each session can have up to 32 children in attendance. This is a mix of 2, 3 and 4 year olds. The children are welcomed in at the start of the session by management who are always available for help and advice.  The other key staff are there to greet all children and help settle them into their sessions supporting the keyperson relationships we build.

We have free flow access from inside to outside from 9:30am to 11:20am and then again from 12.30- 3pm. Free flow consistent of arrange of activities varying from arts and crafts, textured sensory play, variety of role play opportunities, gross and fine motor skills and a range of ways to encourage self- regulations and independence through play. We do split into under 3’s and over 3’s majority of the time to help plan more specific learning styles for their ages however we believe that children learn from their peers so we encourage regular interaction. 

Snacks offered are inline with the government guidelines of healthy eating. We adapt snack to suit the needs of the children with allergies and intolerances. During a festival period we encourage children to try new foods from around the world.  

 Throughout the day, our staff will use a range of child led activities to support the children’s learning and development. We aim to offer a group activity that the children can join in with this is normally at the end of a session to source ideas from the children for the following day. We offer a voice board with all resources and a range of different activities that reflect the events going on in the world. We love to celebrate as many festivals and events as possible. 

At the end of every session we meet parents from the playground where key people give feed back on the children’s day.
