The afternoon routine runs similarly to the morning with children accessing a variety of activities and opportunities. The staff ensure plenty of variety of activities to make sure that children aren´t repeating the same activity over and over again. There is another snack bar available in the afternoon as well as high tea being served to the whole group. Although there are set times for meals it is important that the children are aware that they can help themselves to fresh drinking water at all times.
The staff continually acknowledge and praise positive behaviour. The children receive rewards through verbal praise, a smile or having their photo moved up on the beanstalk reward chart. This is a sure winner which certainly boosts morale and motivation. Although the day may sound a little hectic, the book room is always available to the children where they can sit calmly and read a book. Some even indulge in a little snooze on the bean bags!
Upon collecting your child, you will be provided with a full detailed handover informing you about their day, their achievements and the fun they´ve had along the way!
