We provide imaginative activities using open ended inspiring resources for problem solving and to stimulate the acquisition of language and numeracy skills. We have enough resources for everyone to join in. Our garden is an inspirational outdoor space which provides daily opportunities for the children to learn about the world around them, for example, investigating puddles or a pile of autumn leaves, creating habitat piles and growing fruit and vegetables. All children in the nursery spend a considerable amount of time outside during the day, especially important when it might be dark as they arrive and as they leave.
Children learn best when they are engaged in a natural environment and their intellectual development is greater when they learn using natural resources as well. The challenge is to make the time to notice the subtle magic going on around us every day.
