    Default Daily Routine

    What does your daily routine look like?

    I'm not sure how to structure my day? Do you provide three meals a day plus snacks and how do you fit these in?

    Thank you.

    All my children have breakfast and tea at home , all but one brings a packed lunch. I provide snacks, we eat when children are hungry no set times but generally snacks around 10, 2 and after school. Lunch around 12

    Most mornings we go out , toddlers, park , soft play, childrens centre , library , shops etc

    On days when I have all under 2's routine is pretty much the same but when all over 3's, the children choose what we do so can be very varied especially in the summer months.

    Thank you.
    Your routine will alter depending on the ages of the children you're looking after.

    You might also find there are things you have to do at certain times like the school run

    I wouldn't worry too much - you'll soon find what works for you.

    I don't provide breakfast but lunch is usually between 12 and 1300 and tea around 4.30pm, snacks are fitted in morning and afternoon.

    Pretty much the same as Sarah's!

    Although on a Wednesday I switch lo's nap to the morning and have freeplay at home as we have a lovely cooking stay and play in the afternoon which the 3/4 yr olds love.

    Mine is also very similar

    8am-9am Free Play
    9am-11am Outing or planned activity (snack at 9.30)
    11.30 lunch
    12.15 - 14.15 Quiet time / naps
    Free Play/Getting ready for school run
    15.00 - 15.50 School run
    16.00 snacks
    16.30 - 17.00 usually garden play/stories/music (homework for older ones)
    17.30 home time (dinner just after for those that stay longer)

    times are flexible and sometimes we go out all day and have packed lunch and babies sleep on the way home in the car...
