Our Rooms and Routine

Timetable & Routines

At Heathcot we believe that care and education are equally important in the experience which we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the day in the setting are provided in ways that:

▪ Help each child to feel that she/he is a valued member of the setting.

▪ Ensure the safety of each child.

▪ Help children to gain from the social experience of being part of a group.

▪ Provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning.

The Session

We organise our sessions/days so that the children can choose from, and work at, a range of activities and, in doing so, build up their ability to select and work through a task to its completion. The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led small and large group activities which introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills, as well as helping them to learn to work with others.


Outdoor activities contribute to children's health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them. Children have the opportunity, and are encouraged, to take part in outdoor child-chosen and adult-led activities, as well as those provided in the indoor playroom(s). The setting caters for children's individual needs for rest and quiet activities during the day.

Snacks & Dinner Time

The normal curriculum includes morning and afternoon snacks for all children. The setting makes snacks and dinner time a social occasion at which children and adults sit together. We plan the menus for snacks so that they provide the children with healthy and nutritious food. Do tell us about your child's dietary needs and we will make sure that these are met. For dinnertime we have facilities for storing packed lunches and heating them up when necessary. Packed lunches must be provided by parents as we don’t have the facilities to make dinner on the premises, but we are able to store lunches. Parents need to provide a nutritious packed lunch for full day children or children that stay for lunch club.
