At Stockport Village Nursery we plan each day to ensure your childs steady development and progression, we aaim to build their confidence through praise, recognition and continues support. The overall structure of the day will be specific to your local nursery but idividually tailored to encourage your chid to flourish and naturally inspire them to love learning.
Drop off and breakfast
Drop off is a crucial time of the day and amongst the hustle an bustle of arrivals our aim is to make sure your child gets the best start to the day and is relaxed and settled when you leave. Our staff are well trained and experienced in making sure children are comfortable at drop off time but this is also a crucial time for you to let us know wheather or not your child has slept well or if they are upsdet for some reason so we can make sure the necessary attention is given.
Because our nursery teams will get to know your child well, they will encourage them to join in or select an activity or area of play that they particularly enjoy to ease them into the productive day ahead. morning time is possibly the most important time of the day and the state of mind your child starts the day will generally reflect their mood for the day. hence the reason we do everything we can to make them happy first thing in the morning.....lets face it, no one likes an early start.
Lunch is generally around 11.30am. Our nursery ethos is to create a family type environment amongst both the staff and the children and we try to instill this into everything we do, we get the children talking over lunch about the food and create an enjoyable happy environment. Our nursery teams eat with the children where possible, and our healthy 2 weekly meal plan will we ensure your child is introduced to a range of healthy foods which they will hopefully continue to love as they grow up.
Sleep time (shhh)
Regular sleeps for younger babies throughout the day is incredibly important in the early stages and they will probably need a number of daily sleeps. The amount of sleep your child needs will reduce as thery get older to just one sleep which is ideally placed after lunch time. We will work with you to establish a routine that suits your childs specific needs and fits in with the rest of the day outside of nursery.
Throughout the afternoon your child will enjoy a range of activities designed to enable them to play and explore, discover and grow, learn and understand. Every activity will be tailored to their liking and they will be encouraged to build their confidence and understanding though praise, recognition and support. the afternoon is a time for learning and stimulting your childs mind through various learning activities.
At about 3.30pm the children sit down to tea, although a little lighter than lunch, this meal still consists of a healthy main course prepared by our chef using all fresh ingredients and a delicious pudding which is guaranteed to leave a satisfied smile on their face at the end of the day.
When you arrive to take your child home, our nursery teams will be available to share any information about their day, pass on any important messages and to chat with you about what they are learning and how they are developing.
