The daily routine is planned around a six hour day and we follow all aspects of the Ofsted guidelines using the Statutory Framework for the  Early Years Foundation Stage (April 2017)  and Characteristics of Effective Learning.   Throughout the day, the  children have a choice of the activities and resources they can access, with planned, small and large group times during each session providing maximum opportunities and experiences over the day enabling the children to work towards the Early Learning Goals and preparing them for primary school.
