Outdoor Play

Your child's favourite memories will be made playing outdoors with their friends, surrounded by nature.

We place an emphasis on taking advantage of our exceptional outdoor environment to help your child learn, play and grow. Alongside our spectacular Forest School, your child will also benefit from our large outdoor play facilities. Each room is directly connected to its own outdoor play area, so that your child can choose whether they want to play indoors or outdoors.

We know that some children prefer to learn outdoors, so our outdoor area is surrounded by trees and is full of activities to create an inspiring place to play.


Stimulating outdoor environment

Your child will benefit from an inspiring environment to play in. They can choose whether they would like to play inside or outside, with a wide range of activities available outdoors. This can range from letting off steam on bikes to reading or using natural materials as part of creative activities.

Each room has its own dedicated outdoor area, which includes a covered deck area for outdoor play in wet weather. Staff are always on hand to support and supervise outdoor activities.


Helping your child to grow

Our ethos is based around learning through play, so our outdoor activities will help your child's growth and development. We know that some children prefer to learn outside, so the outdoor play areas all provide the same opportunities to develop their skills as the inside play areas. 

This might be developing their motor and physical skills with our bikes or growing their creativity through role-play in the mud-kitchen. The children will get hands on with nature, helping to water produce in our vegetable garden.


Forest school

Each month, your child will spend a week in our stunning Forest School. Just a few minutes walk away from the main nursery building, this inspiring environment is a favourite place to play.

Forest School is about using hands-on learning experiences to build your child's confidence and independence. They will take part in activities including den-making, bug hunts and stories around the campfire.
