Breakfast & After School

At Manor Minor Juniors and Manor Minors, the drill goes like this...

BREAKFAST: Doors open at 7.45am. From here the children are free to play with whatever toys they choose. From construction and cars to board games and books, there's something for everyone. Breakfast is served until 8.15 with a range of cereals, toast and other extras on offer. Before you know it it's 9am and time for school. The children are walked from the setting into the school with year's reception, 1 and 2 delivered to their classroom door.

AFTER SCHOOL: The children are collected from school at the end of the day (3.15). Children in reception and year one are collected from the classroom while everyone else meets in the library. From here they are taken down to the setting for register and snack time. The menu includes toast, muffins, crumpets, wraps, waffles, pittas and brioche, to name just a few! A range of toppings are also available and, of course, a nice bit of fruit. After snack, the children are free to play with everything in the setting and we endeavour to get outside into the playground when possible. The children help by giving out the snack and are encouraged to tidy away after themselves. Quieter games and reading begin as we head towards 6pm and closing time.

At Ossie's Allstars, things run like this...

BREAKFAST: Again, the doors open at 7.45am. Similar breakfast options are available and the majority of the games and toys can be used (some take too long to set up!). Big games of uno and other card games, pool matches and just sitting around chatting are all popular! The bell rings at 8.45 and everyone heads off to 'enjoy' the school day. Children at Ossie's Allstars who are in year 4 are walked down to Manor Park.

AFTER SCHOOL: Children in year 4 are picked up from the Manor Minors bungalow at 3.15 and walked up to the hut while the St Osmund's children make their own way there (reasonably quickly!). The snack menu is similar to tha of Manor Minors, though the portions are bigger! The children help with snack preparation and handing it out. All the games come out or we head out onto the field for sports etc. We also have a nintendo wii, table tennis, table football and take votes on what everyone would like to do that afternoon. The children take responsibility for tidying away what they have played with and also wash up their plate and cup from snack time.
