Due to shared space in the community centre, our toys, shelves, carpets and tables etc. need to be set up at the start of each day and put back into storage at the end of each day. Each child's family is given a day in the week to assist with storing tables and shelves.
This schedule is flexible and may fluctuate based on the children's interests and needs.
