A Day at Molly's
A regular routine gives children a sense of security. This is why we ensure each session is properly structured, whilst still leaving enough time for spontaneous activities and plenty of fun.
We offer morning, lunch, afternoon and full day sessions Monday to Thursday, and a morning session on Fridays.
At Molly's we encourage the children to self-select resources to support independent learning and extend their imagination. A wide selection of fun activities are always available to the children, including but not limited to: construction toys, crafts, water, sand and play dough. These are modified to suit the focus of the week.
Come rain or shine, time outdoors is a hugely valuable part of a child's development and children at Molly's have access to the gardens at both settings. The children can develop their balancing and risk taking skills on the climbing frames and slides, use their imagination to cook delicious meals in the mud kitchen and develop their fine motor skills with chalks and other crafts adapted for outdoors.
We have access to a woodland which enables us to offer forest school experiences and we take the children to a local allotment to encourage the children to learn about how we can grow our own food.
Phonics and Focus Work
Each week a different focus supports the children's interests and develops their vocabulary, as well as enhancing their understanding of the world around them.
Specialist activities are set up to help the children with their transition to primary school and to support in the very early stages of reading, writing and counting.
Eating together is a great opportunity for your child to develop their social skills.
A healthy snack of fruit, toast, crumpets, crackers and cheese is also offered to all children free of charge half way through both morning and afternoon sessions. Children are provided with water and milk and have access to fresh filtered water throughout the day.
If you require lunch time care, your child can bring a packed lunch along to our lunch club.
Sharing stories and the book corner
Every session ends with singing and a story.
The children have access to hundreds of books in our cosy book corner. We use puppets, big books and book packs to encourage the children's imaginations and help to develop their story telling skills.
