within an overall framework that is consistent and predictable.

Regular daily events: Arrival & departure/ one or more choice times/
Outside time/ group time (for toddlers).

Variables: Sleeping/ eating/ nappy changing/ toiletting
should be weaved into the daily routine.
Routines take time to develop, so need to be relaxed about timing of this process. Cosistency Is the day always organised around a set of regular events and care giving routines?
Is the overall daily routine followed cosistently every day?
Are children's narural rythms, temeraments and needs accommodated every day?
Are transitions from one interesting experience to the other smooth and unhurried every day?
Are practitioners patient with the children's intense intrest in things around them every day?
Do practitioners share control of the day with children by giving them choices every day?
Do practitioners value children's need for sensory motor exploration in each event and routine every day?
Are practitioners alert to childre's verbal and non-verbal communication every day?
Do practitioners work as a team to provide ongoing support to each child throughout the day every day?
Do practitioners look at childrens actions and communications in the context of key experiences every day?
