“Every child has a different learning style and pace.
Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding.” Robert John Meehan
A typical day may look like this…
Children arrive early and have access to the open-plan downstairs area and garden. We provide a healthy breakfast around a table and this is when we plan our day as a group.
Children will have lots of time to learn through their play at Babushka as well as exploring the great outdoors!
We never know what we are going to get up to. The children plan their day around the breakfast table and we ‘story map’ our day. We head out everyday and most days this is straight after breakfast.
Mid-morning we will have a healthy snack – this could be at home, in a park or anywhere we may find ourselves!
After returning from our explorations, children have the option to watch something educational whilst staff prepare lunch, beds and rest.
Early in the afternoon, we all tuck into lunch. Maybe we’re old fashioned but we firmly believe eating should be a leisurely, social occasion where stories and thoughts are shared around a table.
The children will often be involved in growing and preparing their own food and this always brings a whole new dimension to eating!
After a busy morning we may have to fit in some naps and we all enjoy a quieter afternoon. We are flexible and can adapt to the children’s needs for nap times.
Healthy snacks will be provided during the afternoon.
“The ultimate gift we can give the world is to grow our tiny humans into adult humans who are independent thinkers, compassionate doers, conscious questioners, radical innovators and passionate peace makers.” L.R.Knost
