Group Time

The children are encouraged to help tidy up after free-play, and then it is Group Time. Each day their group can discuss ‘Show & Tell’ items. The children chose an item that is linked to the weeks colour and letter theme, and discuss them with their friends.

They then wash their hands in time for a snack.


Children bring a healthy snack in to pre-school, which is eaten at Group Time. Milk is provided.

Story Time & Music

Every pre-school day ends with a story and music session.
