Our Outdoor Area
Our outdoor play areas are Bob's Yard, The Active & Exploration Area, Woodland.... which includes a Mud Kitchen and Our Garden.
We play outside in all weathers; sunshine, rain and snow! We ask that your children wear clothes suitable for the time of year. A waterproof coat and trainers are necessary. We have wellies and all-in-one wetsuits for wet days.
Children benefit from fresh air and vitamin D which is found in the sun light and is essential for growing bodies. Playing outside gives a sense of freedom and release that young children love. It gives them opportunity to practice big movements that will help with future writing skills.
