Children find comfort and a sense of security through a structured day.
At Barrowford Nursery the day is made up of activities and routines which:
– Help each child to feel that they are a valued member of the nursery family
– Help each child to gain from the social experience of being part of a group
– Ensure the safety of each child.
We organise the day so that children can take part in a variety of child chosen and adult led activities, both indoors and out in the environment.
Practitioners work closely in partnership with parents to ensure that individual routines from home are maintained in nursery i.e. for sleep/rest.
Snacks and meals
At Barrowford Nursery every child receives a healthy, balanced snack within the morning and afternoon session, free of charge, to keep their little bodies full of energy and ready to learn! The children also have access to drinking water which is available throughout the day.
Nutritious, well planned nursery meals are available, for a small charge, at lunch and tea each day. At lunch a home made hot meal is made by our in-house catering coordinator, whilst at tea a snack meal is provided.
Individual dietary needs are always met on request. Children are also welcome to bring a cold packed lunch and a drink which are clearly labelled with the child’s name.
Children are encouraged to be curious about healthy, nutritious foods and how this helps them to have a healthy, energetic body.
