When starting at My First Friends Nursery depending on your child's age, your child will be in either the butterflies or caterpillars. During registration time we sing the tiny caterpillar song and use props for the young children to identify what group they are in. We ask the older children what group they are in and sing ill be a butterfly song while doing actions. When explaining the groups the children that are in the caterpillar group are excited to move up into the butterfly group.
We do group time during the day periodically for example registration time. At group time we plan specifically for that age band. So that children are able to understand it and able to complete it while having fun in the process. We use Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) that goes from birth to five years of age.
