In addition to all of the indoor activities, the children go outside every day throughout
the year for fresh air and exercise gained through a variety of activities. We consider
outdoor play and physical exercise to be an essential and fundamental part of children’s
learning and development.
The nursery has two distinct play areas. One for the balancing bikes, scooters and
all other forms of wheels to play and learn how to balance and ride bikes, the other
area features a large Wendy house which children are free to play in, a large climbing
frame, sand pits, water play and lots of obstacle equipment and dressing up clothes
and props we use to encourage imaginative play. Outdoor play has both planned activities,
recognising that some children learn better outdoors, together with opportunity for
children to ‘run free’ and engage their creative imagination.
