Outside Playing

Outdoor Environment

We are very fortunate to have a large outdoor environment, with two slabbed areas and one large grass area. We are very passionate about give our children opportunity to learn outside and have access in all weathers. Our woodland area, consists of a tepee in the centre. 

We ask parents/carers to provide children with spare clothes and appropriate clothing throughout the year depending on the weather i.e, sunhat, wellies etc, with us providing a wet weather suit for the children to use.
