NURSERY GARDEN AND OUTDOOR PLAY

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. We also have a purpose built pavilion in the nursery garden which can be used as an 'outdoor classroom'. This can be used all year round.

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. We also have a compost bin and a water butt in the nursery garden.

 

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

As our nursery is situated on a working farm, there are cows and sheep in the areas surrounding us. During the lambing season, 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.
