About our Daily Activities

The daily routine is scheduled to accomodate the needs of the children. Babies routine is flexible and the educators address their immediate needs first and plan activities according to the babies group interest and readiness. The 18 month plus group have a structured routine yet also have plenty room for flexibility as it is important to work with the childrens motivation, readiness and interest. Parents are informed when a change of activity takes place.
