The Routine

We encourage fluidity and independence at our early years nursery in Clapham, within a well-defined framework that encourages your child to flourish and learn.

Here’s what you can expect:

Free Play 

Your Little Learners are free to explore our classroom, with the support of their Key Worker, making independent choices and gaining vital language, social and fine motor skills. This includes an adult-led table, providing opportunities for sensory exploration and expressive arts and design.

Circle Time/Self-Registration/Handwashing/Snack Time/Story Time 

Each child is welcomed to our session, where we’ll discuss the learning objectives and topics of focus for the term. Children are encouraged to recognise their name tag and independently wash their hands, before sitting at the table to enjoy a healthy snack together. They’ll learn to make independent food choices and try new foods.

Outside Play 

Another opportunity to make play choices at Little Learners, providing lots of opportunities for gross motor exploration and creative peer play. We also have opportunities for structured outside activities to include tennis, ball play, assault courses, bubbles and chalk. Engaging with nature is a key part of the curriculum at our early years nursery in Clapham.

Focus Time 

The children spend time in small groups, engaged in activities which support their next steps in learning. Examples of activities include: Bingo and matching games, Floor puzzles, Duplo/Lego Bricks, woodwork, Jolly Phonic lessons, counting, numeral and shape recognition, ordering and sequencing. All of this promotes critical thinking, turn taking and sharing; giving each Little Learner a head start in their next educational steps.

Music and Movement 

This section provides opportunities for self-expression through musical exploration. At our early years nursery in Clapham, it includes action songs, expressive dance and movement, musical instrument play, parachute games, ring games, group games, mindfulness and yoga.

Final Circle Time 

A perfect end to a fun-packed day at Little Learners. Children wind down, listening and contributing to this whole-group session, which includes; show and tell sessions with items from home, boosting confidence and self-esteem; flash cards, encouraging shape and numeral recognition, as well as a recap of learning objectives and current topics, with the use of rhymes, books and songs.
