A gentle continuation of the kindergarten day, the afternoon kindergarten sessions begin at 1pm with a healthy packed lunch. After eating and chatting with friends at the table it is time to rest awhile – snuggling down in the cosy-corner, looking at books and sharing stories, playing quietly or working on our craft projects.

Then we go to the garden for an hour to play, potter about in the labyrinth, dig in the sandpit, help with some gardening, or just bask in the sun (or run in the rain).

We always have a story just before the children go home at 3.30.
