Monday
8.00 - 9.00 am (Welcome and Free play time)
We put the Nursery Rhymes music on to have a happy and child attractive atmosphere. We welcome each child. Also we have pegs for hanging coats with each individual child’s name on it and boxes with individual name on it for the lunch boxes. Therefore as soon as they come they can put their coats on the peg and put their lunch boxes in their own box. At the beginning we help them to find it but after sometimes they can do it by themselves as it becomes a routine. Now they can start playing with different toys set for them, for example animal corner, kitchen corner, puzzles, blocks and Legos, small cars and colourful toys. During this time we will be developing the child’s understanding of the Good manners, Sharing, being considerate, Asking not demanding, Talking not shouting, walking not running, Taking care of things. 9.00 – 9.10 (Tidy up time)

The music is turned off. We sing “Tidy up time song” and encourage every one helping with tidying up and we praise the good helpers all the time. 9.10- 9.40 (Circle and Learning time)

Wash hands and go to the table to have the snacks. Encourage them to finish their food and of course help the little ones that cannot eat by themselves. Wash hands again. Usually babies would fall sleep shortly after snack time, so we let that be. But some parents would like to keep them awake. In that case we make sure they get enough cuddles and affection and move to next activity. 11.30 – 12.00 (Play out time)

Take the children out to play outside on the slide, drive small cars or in the play house or play with small soft balls. 12.00 -12.30 (Music time)
