“Anything you can teach in an indoor classroom can be taught outdoors, often in ways that are more enjoyable for children”

Outdoor play areas

All of our nurseries have an enclosed and secure outdoor play area for older children and a separate outdoor area for younger children, where they can play safely. Children laugh and squeal with delight as they make “mud pies” in our well-resourced mud kitchens, or as they build dens and play hide and seek. They enjoy splashing in muddy puddles or just putting their feet up and relaxing with a good book. We like our children to have fun in the outdoors therefore clothing must be provided for all weathers.

Children are frequently taken on Nursery outings. These may include having a yummy picnic time at the park, brushing up on our reading at the library and broadening our knowledge of the world at the museum or at a show. Safety is always a priority, and risk assessments are carried out before every outing and a qualified first aider is always present.
