Outside Play Area

We promote free access to our outdoor play areas in all weathers and provide all weather clothing for the children to be dry and warm whilst choosing to play outside.

We have three designated areas of outside play.


A covered area for Cottontails, Early Learners and Little Learners where they can experience physical play which encourages them to climb, crawl and explore the outside world. There is a variety of age appropriate resources for them to choose from.

Our second play area is for Tweenies and Preschool where the children enjoy construction, ball games, ride on cars and trikes, climbing and imaginative play. The children are encouraged to explore the world around them and our nursery staff observe and enhance the children's play. In addition, our outside covered classroom ensures fresh air and physical play whatever the weather.

The third area is a grassed area where children from all rooms have the opportunity to use. Here the children can experience looking for mini beasts, planting flowers and vegetables, digging for worms in our raised beds. It gives the children the opportunity to experience and explore nature.
