Outdoor Play

 

We have a large outside area at nursery which is divided into four separate play areas. We try and make use of our outside areas each and everyday.

Can we please ask that in the warmer weather you could supply a sun hat and sun cream and in the winter a warm coat, hat, gloves and Wellingtons.

Sensory Garden: Provides a shaded area with a shallow water feature and bridge, growing pots, plants, wind chimes and a gazebo for story time. There is space to create treasure hunts, go bug hunting and explore.

All Weather Area: Provides a safe, secure “Outdoor Classroom” which is used for free play with balls, bikes, small world, messy play, role play, construction, a play house and space for group games and activities.

Crèche Play Area: A safe, secure area for our younger children to enjoy. It provides soft, matted flooring so is suitable for sitting, crawling and toddling babies.

Garden Area: A grassed area where children are encouraged to take controlled risks and explore the tyres, camouflage netting and uneven ground. There is also a “Mud Kitchen” for children to use their imaginations to explore and investigate what mud can do using various tools and water.

 We provide an extensive range of developmentally appropriate equipment which is carefully chosen in order to further children’s development in all areas of learning.

We are lucky enough to be located close to other amenities in the area and we like to take advantage of these when possible. We take the children on a variety of trips and excursions to the park, children’s centre, local common and attractions within the community as well as a leavers trip every summer to the farm or beach.
