Our nursery has a safe outdoor environment for the children to explore. There is a rubberised safety surface for the climbing frame and slide as well as all other kinds of outdoor play.

There is a turfed area and an area with bark chippings with natural materials to explore. The children have their own section of the garden to grow their own vegetables and flowers etc. They are involved in planting seeds, watering, weeding and harvesting from their garden.


All children will have the opportunity for outdoor freeplay, and a structured outdoor activity during each session.

Ladybirds (Baby Room) Outdoor Area

We also have an enclosed all-weather outside area for the babies to play in. Small groups can be taken out to this area to play safely with their friends without the hustle and bustle of the older children's playground.

We also have an outdoor pavilion classroom area (The Creation Station) in the nursery garden. Small groups of children can be taken out to the classroom to participate in arts and crafts activities.

As our nursery is situated on a working farm, there are cows and sheep in the areas surrounding us. During the lambing season, thanks to Keith and Phil (the farmers) the children can have hands-on experience once parental consent has been granted.


There is a public footpath behind the nursery, which the children can use to explore the natural world around them. They will have nature walks on this path leading up to the wooded area, which is home to a variety of wildlife, including fallow deer, providing the children with invaluable learning experiences.
