Nursery

A typical day at Barnet Hill Nursery

Arrival: The children arrive at the nursery between 8.30am and 9:00 am where they are welcomed by staff and friends and settle in with free choice play.
Registration / Circle time: Children start their day by reading their morning duas. The register is then taken so that the teacher and school are aware of which children are in school and who have not come in.
Circle time: This is part of the daily routine when all the children and staff meet together to discuss the day, date, weather, month and season. They also do action rhymes, sing songs, exchange news and tell stories.
Morning activities: All children are naturally curious, questioning and eager to learn and to encourage this curiosity the Nursery staff at BHA carefully organise timetables full of different activities every day. One thing is for certain: the more variety there is on offer, the more your child will learn, and the more they will enjoy it!
