A typical day in the Nursery

Whilst each day at Greenwood is a new and exciting adventure there are some familiar experiences that the children encounter everyday. Here is a guide as to what your child can expect each day in the Nursery room…

 

Arriving at Greenwood

7am – Greenwood Opens
Good morning! We hope you are ready for an action packed day of discovery and learning with your friends and Educators!

8am – Nappy Change
Each room schedules nappy change times every two hours throughout the day. Our Educators are also constantly checking the children to see if they need changing in between these times.

Greenwood provides all nappies and wipes for Nursery children. To best suit our little friends we use a mix of the most popular name brand nappy and an innovative, biodegradable nappy in our Nursery rooms. Our biodegradable nappies have been thoroughly quality tested and help to reduce the amount of disposable nappies that won’t break down in landfill.
