Garden

We have an enclosed outdoor play area comprising of a safety surface and garden area complete with climbing mounds and balancing beam, sunken sand pit, water play area and natural area which includes seating and investigation area.

 Outdoor play is an important part of our curriculum and children are encouraged to play outdoors whatever the weather.  Our parasol and wicker hut provides shelter from the rain and sun offering opportunity for play and activities to continue.

In addition to all of the activities indoors, we like to use our garden as an outdoor classroom. We offer snack times, story times, chalking, den building, construction, music, weaving and natural resorces  to all children in the nursery.
