Oaklands Nursery School
“Play, Learn and Achieve Together”
Routine of the day


There is a structure to the day which enables the children to be independent learners and make choices about what they do.

At the start of the session children come into nursery to free choice of all activities for the first 15 minutes; parents/carers are welcome to stay and join in.

A tambourine signals time to go to their key worker for registration time. This is used as a teaching time with opportunities for counting, phonics, conversation about their news and what they are planning to do that day.

There is then a time for children to either take part in an adult focused activity, which has been planned based on their learning needs, or choose independently anywhere inside or outside to play. There are adults available in all areas to support and extend their learning through their play.

In the middle of the session children come together for snack time.

The children have another session of child choice activities supported by the staff then story time in their key worker groups at the end of the session.
