Our outside area is used by all the children in the Nursery at varying times of the day. The rainbow Room has access to the garden all day everyday no matter what the weather.
We have an area of rubber matting, which provides a safe environment for the children to use our vast selection of climbing equipment. A large grass area provides a great space for the children to use their imagination, exercise freely, run, play ball games, or use the ride on equipment. A patio area is available for the children to relax, play with the sand and water and have a go at gardening.
The outside area is used as an extra room and all children go outside throughout the year; we splash in puddles in the rain and try to find Jack Frost in the cold.
Being outdoors has a positive impact on children’s sense of well being and helps all aspects of children’s development.
Outdoor environments offer children freedom to explore, use their senses, and be physically active and exuberant.
It gives children first-hand contact with weather, seasons, and the natural world.
