Mighty Munchkins is a small play group, my gates are open from 7:15 for the early working parents. We normally follow a daily routine that includes: tasks, activities and outdoor play based on the schedule below:
Activity time 8:00-9:45
When all the children have arrived for the morning, we try and complete one structured task a morning. The children start the day with activities such as: cutting play dough, threading, tearing pictures from magazines for collages, puzzle building and number tasks.
When all the children have had a chance to complete their one on one time we then go outside to ride bikes, cars, bouncy horses, play in the water tray etc until snack time routine at 9:45.
Snack time 10:00-10:30
Before snack we all go to the toilet, sit on potties and wash our hands. We then sit at the tables and say a quick grace song then we eat, children are encouraged to Pack away and tuck in chairs. After snack we go through to the Big garden.
BIG garden 10:45-11:35
Here we play group games and work on our gross motor muscles on the swings, trampoline, jungle gyms and tyres.
Story time 11:45-12:00
Story time is a chance to learn new vocabulary and calm down before parents fetch.
Parents fetch children between 12:00 and 12:30. If you need children to stay longer please let me know.
