A Typical Day – Finkley Hudson’s Field

On a typical day at Finkley Hudson’s Field Nursery, your child will experience a fun-filled, action-packed day in a warm and enriching environment.

On arrival, you will be welcomed at the reception area by one of our friendly members of staff. Your child will then be encouraged to find their picture and hang their nursery bag up on a peg they have chosen, to complete self-registration. If you have a baby or toddler then you will take them to their room upstairs.

We encourage children to be independent in choosing activities throughout the day, selecting which area they would like to play in or visit. Our staff will ensure that they are exposed to a range of activities and experiences but allowing the child to have ownership of their learning.

At Finkley Hudson’s Field Nursery, we are huge believers in learning through hands-on experiences and play. The children regularly visit places such as Avon Valley Nature Reserve, Old Sarum, local woods and of course Hudson’s field. These visits are not just for the older children, all our children will be out and about even if its in prams and pushchairs.

Each child’s development is closely monitored by our staff, using an online learning journal called Tapestry. This will record each child’s development in conjunction with the Early Year’s Foundation Stage (EYFS).

The children will have breakfast, a healthy snack mid-morning and afternoon, then lunch at midday (this may be a picnic if we are out and about exploring). They will often be encouraged to help prepare and clear up the meal too. The children also have access to unlimited drinks of water throughout the day which they are encouraged to help themselves to.

For the babies We can offer a baby lead weaning menu and are happy to support you with your babies milk journey.

At the end of the day, children will be collected from the reception area, taking their nursery bags home with them each day.
