Just Little Ones aim to provide a “home from home” setting for the children in our care. All children need a routine so activities will be based around the needs of individual children, there will be a loose structure so that older children can get to school on time, and that the younger children get to socialise at toddler groups, soft play and many other activities.
Typical Daily Plan
7.30 am – Free play
8.00 am – Breakfast
8.30 – 9.15 am – School/nursery drop off followed by morning activity

12.30 – 1.00pm – Rest time in cot/bed or doing quiet activities downstairs i.e. looking at books or puzzles

- The routine can be adapted to suit individual children, i.e. if your child sleeps in the morning instead of after lunch then provision can be made for this.
- Activities will vary in the holidays, when there will be trips out with school age children, whilst also taking into account the needs of the younger children in the setting.
- Examples of morning activities include music groups and singing at the local library, toddlers group, visits to the park or local National Trust properties, collecting leaves to make collages, visits to the farm to see the animals, visits to the library and local shops to learn about the local community, and much more!
