At Nurture Day Nurseries the child always comes first…..
Our aim is to ensure that the children in our care are happy and content, we believe this is achieved through a daily routine that provides structure and diversity to their day.
This regular consistency instils trust; the children recognise the order of events in their day and take comfort knowing their meal and sleep times.

The activities that your child has been involved in and what foods they ate, will be communicated to you on a daily basis. For the smaller children we will also record sleep times, nappy changes and liquid intake.

Below are example routines to give you a flavour of a typical day. Routines remain flexible to accommodate a child’s varying individual needs. Sleep and meal times always reflect the needs of the child and wishes of the parents. The structure of our day will allow the children to access a variety of different activities which are indoor or out in the fresh air. The routines below simply demonstrate the mechanics and how sleep, meals, personal care, education and play are all integrated.
Group activities take the form of dance, zumba, yoga, computer lessons, cookery and outings...the list goes on!
