The Great Outdoors

Sensory & physical activities

Our nursery has two gardens for children to access. The front garden is our sensory area where we do our planting, growing and harvesting. We grow a variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs that are incorporated into our meals. We often have grandparents and parents  to help with our growing activities. 

The back garden is where all the physical activities take place engaging your child’s gross motor skills. Here we have the timber trail where your children can develop their balancing skills. The children also have access to balance bikes, the large sand pit, water play and many more outdoor resources. The nursery provides wetsuits for all the children in the nursery so there is no reason why we cannot enjoy the outdoors. 

The nursery is very lucky to have Beckett park on our doorstop. We are surrounded by beautiful tress and we are situated in an area that has low pollution.
