Daily Programme

We believe that a young child’s development is nurtured through a programme that makes use of both structured and free-play. Each week a different theme is covered and that theme is incorporated into each structured activity and class discussion, thereby helping the children learn about their environment. The weekly theme is displayed on the notice board so that parents can stay involved and discuss the weekly theme with their child at home.

Every Friday is baking day. This is one of their favourite activities and they are able to have fun baking as well as take home their finished baking products.
Every Thursday the Playgroup and Executots class has the option of participating in Marleanco, smart progressive movement education. Marleanco incorporates neuro developmental processing, gross motor development, sport skill building and remediation of problem areas. Speciliast Marleanco coaches offer a fun programme that focuses on the following areas of development:
  • Locomotive patterns e.g. skip, gallop, dodge, hops, etc
  • Manipulative patterns e.g. throw, catch, kick, dribble, strike, etc
  • Body and space awareness e.g. body parts, body shapes, non-locomotion movements
  • Balance and stability e.g. dynamic and static balance
  • Hoola-hoop activities incorporating perceptual skills e.g. similarities, differences, memory recall, positioning and counting, etc
  • Rope and ribbon e.g. rope skipping, crossing of the midline and ocular pursuit
  • Mini trampoline activities e.g. auditory motor skills and co-ordination
  • Physio ball and inner tube activities e.g. vestibular development and core muscle development.

Menu

We believe in offering our children a healthy and well-balanced diet while at the Executots Crèche. Nutrition is vital to a child’s development and we hope that teaching a child to enjoy healthy food from a young age will assist them to continue eating healthy as they grow older. We have a dedicated cook who prepares freshly cooked meals daily, including lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.
