Through careful planning, our daily routine includes free play at the beginning of the session. We believe that achieving a balance between adult-led and child-led activity is crucial to their development. Our resources change from week to week to provide each child with the opportunity to try new activities and use avariety of equipment. Children are encouraged to direct their own learning, through exploring the different areas of our setting at their own pace and in their own way.
