The Nursery believes that physical education is extremely important in helping our children to grown into active healthy adults. We pride ourselves in giving our children many opportunities to have fun whilst being active.
We have excellent garden facilities with a wide range equipment to help develop gross and fine motor skills in a safe and secure environment. Children have several opportunities throughout the nursery session to access the garden in all weathers.
We follow a garden equipment plan that ensures varied equipment is available covering all seven areas of learning so it is not only a place to be active but also an environment to learn.
Exploring the outside environment is an essential part of learning new skills needed for everyday life. Knowing this we include visits and outings in our curriculum and this is planned within our monthly topics.
In the past we have enjoyed trips to; share music with our older friends, a local community garden to take photos, the park to have a mini beast hunt and areas of local interest to support our topic work.
When planning trips we ensure that we exceed the recommended ratio from Ofsted and encourage parents to come and join the fun!
