Hello! I am in a very large open plan environment (mixed Nursery/Reception) I am concerned that the children don't get to have enough time in the environment. As it stands at the moment we are in school for 6 hours a day (some nursery children sleep in the afternoons) Out of that 6 hours the children have approximately 2 hours of CP time. (This is split over the morning and afternoon so sleeping children only get 1 hour) The rest of the time is Group Times (where we are in our own classes 3x a day for 20 minutes 1x a day for 40 - 1hr 40mins Outside Play - 1 Hour (this is how breaks are handled - half staff gone for 30mins at a time) Lunch and Outside Play - 1 Hour We also have specialist lessons (music, PE and swimming...we live in a hot country!) This makes up the extra time but varies on the particular day I'm trying to implement some changes but understandably some of the staff are worried about how it will affect their breaks. How do you manage it in your environment? I was wondering if anyone would mind sharing with me how long the children in your settings have for Continuous Provision. Thanks in advance!
