A Day at Nursery
It’s only natural to be interested in what a typical day in our nursery might look like. So, we’ve put together a detailed timeline of the activities your child will experience during an ordinary day.
On arrival, your child will be invited to choose from a selection of cereals and toast for breakfast. Our nursery team encourage all children to self-serve and make healthy choices.
Later that morning your child will have a 45minute gym floor session with a qualified Gymfinity Kids coach. This is when children begin working towards their star moves progression program. Your child will bring home a certificate for each level they pass.
After working up an appetite, your child will then be able to choose whether they wish to have a healthy snack by coming to the snack table at their own will. This is to encourage independence; our nursery team will encourage children to choose one of the nutritious snack options. Your child will then prepare their snack by cutting their own fruits or buttering their own crackers or rice cakes.
As part of your child’s daily routine, they’ll have access to an outdoor play area. This is an opportunity for children to develop social and physical skills as they join in with planned playground games or use sports equipment to build strength and agility.
Now is the time to enjoy our nursery menu, which has been endorsed by a leading child expert nutritionist. We cater for all allergy, cultural and religious requirements. Your child will receive a hot, nutritious and yummy lunch every day.
After a big lunch your child will usually have a mid-day sleep on one our flat beds in a calm and relaxing environment. As a setting we promote mindfulness, so if your child doesn’t feel sleepy they’ll be encouraged to participate in a yoga or mindfulness session delivered by a trained member of the team.
At our nursery, your child will follow the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum. Throughout their day your child will take part in activities planned by their key person. These activities are designed to develop your child’s learning, meeting key milestones and celebrate other cultures and British values.
To finish their day, your child will be provided with afternoon tea. All children are encouraged to join in with the preparation. This helps to develop an understanding of healthy eating and key life skills.
We will follow your babies individual feeding and sleeping routine
The staff have been great and through her settling in sessions in September she has settled really well. I love seeing the photos they post on the parent app of what she has been up to in the day. She is always happy to go which is really reassuring.
My daughter shows me the gymnastics she has been learning when she comes home and I've also noticed that her speech and vocabulary have really improved since being there. All the staff are really welcoming and with the many questions I have asked are very knowledgeable.
My twin boys have absolutely LOVED settling in at the Nursery at Gymfinity Maidstone! The team have made the boys so welcome and they love telling me all about the gym work they have been doing and playing in the garden!
The staff have all been exceptional especially during lockdown when both my partner and myself still had to work, they kept the nursery open for her without question. Our daughter always feels happy and safe to be left at the nursery which makes it a little bit easier leaving her knowing that she is safe and content.
My son has been going to the nursery since he was 6 months old and from the first day, he felt like he was at home. Two months later he is getting better and better day by day. They are helping him with crawling, make his first steps and trying different types of food.
My son has started walking at only 10 months old due to the wonderful facilities available he has gained the confidence due to the soft gymnastic floors.
My little girl loves the very well maintained garden and I have extremely close bonds to all staff, they all know my children and their routines very well.
We started our little girl in August 2020 and she has loved every moment to date. The facilities at the venue are amazing, lots of interactive toys, stimulating activities and safe places to play, explore, learn and have fun. In addition to the nursery space, the children have full access to the fully equipped gym floor, with daily sessions facilitated by qualified gym
