10.30amActivities continue, indoors and out, whatever the weather!
12.00 noonLunchtime. Every child, and all the staff, eat together, in a ‘family meal-time’ style. The menu changes often and is published on our website, and all dietary requirements can be catered for.
12.30pmAfter lunch, many children sleep in our beautiful sleep space. This room, complete with twinkly fairy lights and relaxing music, is the perfect place to ensure your child gets high-quality sleep during their Nursery day. We work to your routine, following any guidelines you wish, with regard to routines and sleep patterns. For those who do not nap, the activities downstairs continue, with a host of opportunities for messy play, exploration, art and craft, and construction, regularly replenished throughout the day.

During the afternoon, all the children go out for a walk for at least thirty minutes, around our beautiful grounds. They may visit the kitchen to do some cookery, use equipment in the garden to build an obstacle course, or put on a puppet show in our yurt.
