When choosing a nursery please remember that you can only receive government funding when your child turns Three from a nursery who is a Registered Educational Provider like ourselves, not all nurseries are Registered to receive the funding..
Outdoor play gives children contact with the real world, enables them to learn through first hand experiences and to process their feelings, thoughts and ideas.
With this in mind we have created an area where the children can:
Jump, Balance, Manoeuvre, Stamp, Splash, Dig, Weed, Problem solve, Create, Plan, Climb, Smell, Taste, Touch, Be rough, Be gentle, Count, Harvest, Squat, Hop, Skip, Run, Fall down, Get up, Go over, Go through, Go under, Record, Sit, Be up high, Be down low, Throw, Catch, kick, Draw, Ride, Build, Dabble, Poke, Sail, Be caring, Be careless, watch, Listen, Sow seeds, Creep, Squat, Shuffle, Follow, Park cars and bikes, Stand still, Time things, Measure, Float, Chase, Hide, Peer, Talk, Negotiate, Paint, Be loud, Be quiet, Be calm, Be still, Reflect, Be responsible, Be boisterous, Rake, Learn, Sieve, and Sing.
The Children also experience:
The air, light, weather, seasons, being warm, being cold, good health, getting wet, getting out of breath, being one of a 2, 3, 4 and 5 group, challenge, achievement, co-operating, feeling and dealing with the full range of their emotions.
The list of benefits the children receive from playing outside are endless.
There is a saying that 'there is no such thing as bad weather, there is just bad clothing'. To be able to access our garden area in all weathers we have all-in-one suits so that the children are not hindered by wet weather and large sunshades for the hot sunny days.
Our garden area is very important to us, as we believe that it is one of our greatest assets, it is an area where children can learn so much.
Our garden offers a wonderfully rich, multi-sensory environment that is meaningful, stimulating and motivating for all of our young children.
It is a different environment that works in harmony with the indoors, extending and complementing it.
