· Morning – after breakfast and school runs we usually go out to a group or the park. We go to a variety of groups including toddlers and music sessions depending on the days children attend.
· Lunch time – we sit together and eat, after which the little ones have a rest or sleep and the older children can have one-to-one time, following their interests or getting involved in planned activities;
· Afternoon – we like to play either inside or outside (we like to go out in all weathers!) painting, cutting and sticking, story time, play dough, messy play, water and sand, singing and dancing. We will also pick up school aged children for after school care;
· Tea time – the children can help in the kitchen and prepare tea, set the table etc. before we all eat together. Most children go home after tea.
Some days we have visitors or go on outings to visit other Childminders homes which is a great way for children to play with lots of different toys and equipment
