Our Cygnets sessions are suitable for the majority of our children aged 2.5 until 5 years old.
These sessions are run with the "Birth to Three Matters" framework and are especially tailored to meet the needs of younger children. There is also a higher adult/child ratio and the sessions provide a gentle introduction into pre-school. Each session is carefully planned to provide a variety of activities across the seven areas of early learning.
A Typical Day as a Cygnet
Mornings begin with register time, a chance to discuss the sessions theme and share news as a whole group.
Then it is time for the children to choose from a number of activities, both indoors and outdoors. These include:
Arts and Crafts
Dressing up and role play
Table top activities
The children have access to a snack bar, where they can have a drink and share healthy snacks.
Weather permitting, the children go outside to play either in the playground or the orchard, or they may go into the school hall for music and movement.
This is usually followed by story time and an opportunity for "show and tell", where the children can talk about items they have brought in relating to the theme.
We offer cookery sessions on a weekly basis and spend a lot of time in the allotment planting flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables that we can make use of in our cooking.
Early Bird & After School Clubs
We run an Early Bird Club (from 8:30 - 9:00am) and an After School Club (from 3:00 - 3:15pm).
Early Bird is charged at £5 per session and includes breakfast if required.
After School Club is charged at £2 per session.
They can be a one off or regular booking, but are subject to availability and should be booked in advance with our Administrator.
