We have a “big garden” which is mainly for our pre-school children and older toddlers and a “small garden” for our children aged under 2. All children have daily outdoor play and outdoor learning sessions. Even our youngest babies and toddlers benefit from regular sessions in the “big garden” where there is plenty of space for more physical activities. Both gardens are fully-enclosed and offer a great range of outdoor activities and experiences. Whenever possible, we encourage the children to enjoy “free flow” between the indoors and outdoors.
Outdoor play and learning help children develop their motor skills, coordination, communication, balance and stamina. Many outdoor learning activities are closely aligned to the Early Years Curriculum and literacy, language, numeracy and “the world around us” feature in nearly all our outdoor activities.
Our playground and outdoor activities change with the seasons and with current topics and events to ensure a world of discovery and exploration.
