Daily programme

07:00 – 08:00

Opening, arrival of children and free play

Children engage in free play in the morning when they can meet teachers and other children. Free play is important for personal, social and emotional development.

08:00 – 08:30

Health exercises (warm-up)

Every day before ten, we have a morning exercise where the children get really active, which improves their mood, attention and ability to learn and think throughout the whole day.

08:30 – 09:30

Breakfast/Brunch (hygiene, dining, meals)

09:30 – 10:30

Morning circle and educational activity

We start the day with a morning circle, where the children learn what day it is, the weather, and the plan for the day. The educational activity is always adapted to the week’s topic of the week, and the activity is adapted to a different topic every day (mathematics, language and communication, art, etc.).

10:30 – 11:30

Stay outside (play, movement and educational activity)

We go outside in almost any weather – and alternate between our playground and forest walks. In good weather we stay outside longer, and do educational activities in the playground or forest.

11:30 – 12:30

Lunch (hygiene, dining, meals)

12:30 – 14:30
