The group meets by Wildflowers' barn from 8.45 am. At 9.15 am we sit together to say a seasonal rhyme and talk about something interesting. Then we walk to nearby natural spaces where the children climb and balance, observe changes in the trees and landscape over the seasons, explore places, construct, invent and play imaginatively using what they find, and learn to stay safe and be kind to others. Mid-morning, we eat fruit and home-baked bread and make up a story.
When returning at 12.30 pm, the two-year-olds are collected. The others go inside to have a quiet rest and a warm healthy meal. Afterwards, the children engage in creative play or an activity in which they experiment with materials and develop skills. Before the children are collected at 3 pm, we gather to talk about what we did and discovered during our day together..
