School Readiness

The government has been talking a lot recently about nurseries ensuring 'school readiness' in nurseries.

We have always planned for this. One example is Bubbles independent snack time. It really makes the children feel grown up. It is one of the ways the teachers help the children to gain the needed skills to be ready for 'big' school.

The children are allowed to choose when (within the allocated time slot) they have their snack. They find their own (by checking the name tags), pour their own milk and when finished they put their cups in the sink!
