A Day In The Life Of Beechwood Pre-School

Children not booked into breakfast club from 7.30 can be dropped off from 8.00am in the Pre-School. As their friends arrive, they play freely until registration at 8.30am when our session begins.

Each day is timetabled and while much of the day is in the setting or grounds surrounding it, the children have structured lessons in Cookery, PE, Music and Forest School with specialist teachers during the week.

Depending on the daily timetable a snack is scheduled from around 10.00 – 10.30 where the children are offered a selection of fruit, vegetables, cheese, crackers, and occasional treats from our kitchen. We also provide milk and water.

Our children have access to free flow throughout their sessions to enjoy time both indoors and outside in our designated play area.

At 12.00 noon the children eat lunch in our refectory seated with their teachers to promote good table manners and to ensure the children eat well.

At 1.00pm our morning session finishes and those children going home are collected from the Pre-School. The remaining children enjoy playtime with the Reception class until 1.30pm.

During the afternoon the children enjoy a range of activities, child initiated, and adult led. At 3.00pm the children have the opportunity to make their own sandwiches for an afternoon snack.

Our session finishes at 3.30pm however collection is up until 4.00pm when wrap around care can be provided until 6.00pm if required.
