A Typical Day – Finkley Weeke

On a typical day at Finkley Weeke Nursery, your child will experience a fun-filled, action-packed day in a warm and enriching environment.

On arrival, you will be welcomed at the reception area by one of our friendly members of staff. Your child will then be encouraged to find their picture and hang their nursery bag up on a peg they have chosen, to complete self-registration.

We encourage children to be independent in choosing activities throughout the day, selecting which area they would like to play in or visit. Our staff will ensure that they are exposed to a range of activities and experiences but allowing the child to have ownership of their learning.

At Finkley Weeke Nursery, we are huge believers in learning through hands-on experiences and play. We are fortunate enough to have our own minibus, meaning we can explore the local area on a daily basis, and extend children’s learning through fun and practical activities. The children regularly visit places such as Finkley Down Farm, Winnall Moors, local woods and parks. We have exclusive access to the farm before it is open to the public, where we provide hands-on experiences for the children such as pony grooming, feeding the animals and rabbit handling. Our nursery also has a large outdoor area, which the children love to explore and enjoy spending time outside.

Each child’s development is closely monitored by our staff, using an online learning journal called Tapestry. This will record each child’s development in conjunction with the Early Year’s Foundation Stage (EYFS).

The children will have breakfast, a healthy snack mid-morning and afternoon, then lunch at midday (this may be a picnic if we are out and about exploring). They will often be encouraged to help prepare and clear up the meal too. The children also have access to unlimited drinks of water throughout the day which they are encouraged to help themselves to.

At the end of the day, children will be collected from the reception area, taking their nursery bags home with them each day.
