A Day at Busy Bees

iStock_000002626872MediumOur school day is broken into two sessions. Both sessions follow a similar format where the children are free to choose how they learn in our free-flow classroom.

On arrival your child will ‘sign-in’.  This usually entails adding their picture to our registration wall.


The session progresses with adult-led group time where we will choose a ‘special helper’ for the session.  This child has some extra tasks during the session for which they are responsible – we introduce children to the concepts of independence and responsibility.

Children are encouraged to move throughout our pre-school, inside and out, no matter what the weather is.  They are able to experience phonics, mark making and number work in all areas.

Snack break

During the session we have adult-led activity based areas which pick a theme that the children have shown an interest in.  This can include the lifecycle of a butterfly, dinosaurs, mud making and cookery to name a few things.

Everyone stops half-way through the session to enjoy their snack together.

There will be further free-flow learning until towards the end of the session when your child will enjoy a story or musical activity before heading home.
