A Typical Day

A typical day at Sandhills Preschool Nursery Oxford, Headington, playgroup, early years, childcare

Morning session

The pre-school day starts at 8.50 when children and parents are welcomed by their key person or buddy. They will support you in settling your child in.

Free play both inside and out are available throughout the session, with a sensitive balance of adult focused and initiated activities planned within the session.

Within the session children will have rolling snack time and focus group time for children ready for this. This is an important time for the children as it is either a number or letters group or spiral group to work on confidence.

We come together as a group to finish off the session with a themed story and singing/rhyme time.

Morning children are picked up at 11.20 and key workers will be available to chat with you and your child about their morning.

Lunch

Your child is welcome to join us for lunch (for an additional charge) which is from 11.20 – 12.20. We ask you to provide healthy options in lunch boxes, make sure fruit such as grapes are cut in half and those that may have stones are de-stoned beforehand. We also ask you to provide appropriate cutlery.

Afternoon session

Our afternoon session Begins at 12.20 and follows a similar pattern to the morning session.

The afternoon session finishes 2.50. Children will be with their Key person and there is an opportunity to chat with your child and key person about their day.

Birthdays

We like to celebrate every child’s Birthdays, so if you wish to bring in a cake or a similar treat for the children to share you are most welcome to do so.
