A day in the life


Our routine is flexible, meaning that from time to time, we will adapt the day (or a child’s routine) to meet the needs of the children and to make the best use of the learning opportunities available to us.

This is our toddler’s routine. The Preschool groups 1 and 2 are similar. Babies are on their own individual routines, gradually moving into a similar routine to this. Contact the centre manager direct if you are interested in the routine for your child.
