The Outdoors

Children have access to outside area daily, the door is opened up during the day and children are able to access freely, meaning children can make their own choice to play inside or out!

Appropriate clothing is provided for the seasons, sun hats, winter hats, scarves, fleeces, wellies, and waterproof over-suits, waterproof jackets and body warmers. Children are encouraged to develop independence through attempting to put their own coat, wellies and hats on.

The outside area boasts a number of areas including; talking area, mark making areas, a Wendy house, large sand pit and hill to climb. We also have a separate digging area, which the children love, a herb garden and a wonderful mud kitchen.

Both the Blue and Yellow Room children access the shared garden area and this gives them a lovely opportunity to interact with older children or indeed their siblings.

The children love to explore outside and there are many learning opportunities and experiences in offer outside!

“Thank you so much for all you have done for both Arthur and Stanley. You have cared for them through the tears and tantrums and breath holding! Stanley has had such an amazing time here and it was through your dedication and care and support. It is sad that he is leaving but I am sure he will settle in his new nursery because of the confidence and skills you have given him. Thank you!”

“Thank you for helping me to learn and grow, giving me cuddles when I cried, sharing my joys when I did something for the first time. Thank you for always making me feel safe and loved and my mummy says Thank you for helping to raise me!”



“Thank you so much for making me feel so comfortable and welcome during my lunchtime feeds with Anna. You made the transition back to work much easier and I couldn’t have chosen a better group of ladies to leave her with each day. We both look forward to her time still to come in the Yellow Room.”
