What do we do in our afternoons?
At the start of each week, our staff display our Weekly Program and Menu! You can check these out on our notice board.
Each afternoon, designated staff members prepare the food for the children.
After Roll Call for the children at 3pm, the children are then seated outside to receive their afternoon tea.
Each afternoon, we offer an array of fresh fruits and vegetables, including red and green apples, rock melon, carrots and oranges. In addition to this, we offer more snacks ranging from sandwiches, to lasagne, even vegetable fried rice! We ensure that each child has fruit on their plate before they receive their other snack.
After afternoon tea, the children are given options for what they would like to do. Our areas are as follows:
- Indoor Hall - Here we offer craft activities, free play with toys (Lego, Mobilo, train tracks, grocery shop etc.) and Lego challenges!
- Bottom Playground - We offer a structured game each day run by staff, as well as free play with sports equipment.
- Top Playground - We offer a range of more relaxed outdoor games such as skipping, handball and free play in the garden.
- Library - This is where the children have the opportunity to complete their written and E-homework or have quiet reading time. The children are given the opportunity to also complete their written homework in the hall, if they wish to do so. We provide stationary for them to do so.
At 4:45pm each afternoon, we serve the children an additional light snack before they have dinner at home. We offer a couple of gluten free rice and corn crackers and fruit.
At 5pm each day, we divide the children into three groups, where they have a choice of three different activities. We enjoy group games, where the children can mix with other year groups, learn to play in a team and cooperate.
At 6pm we say goodbye and hope we see you again soon!
