Outdoor learning is an integral part of our children’s routine at nursery. Our outdoor area allows children to explore through a range of activities on a big, messy scale. There are opportunities to engage in a range of play, physical, sensory, role play and imaginative play. We may carry out some structured sessions learning about the natural world or outdoor music sessions. We generally follow our children’s lead which may take our practitioners and children to the beach, the zoo, climbing a mountain, working in a mud café, anywhere their imagination takes them.
We have a special allotment area where children grow their own vegetables, they learn about how to take care of the plants which types of plant grown best at certain times of the year and how to harvest them. They children love tasting the fruit and vegetables and cooking our meals with them. Our children learn outdoors whatever the weather!!
