Children have a natural instinct to explore and discover using their senses and motor skills. Through their discoveries, children master essential life skills such as problem solving, concentration and decision making.
The children are offered daily experiences to explore the outdoor environment exploring tyres or using them to create an outdoor garage or working together to fix a bicycle. The possibilities are endless.
We also have a wide range of ‘loose parts’ materials for the children to explore outdoors promoting creativity and imagination.
Being out in the rain is a multi-sensory experience and provides many learning opportunities. It can provide good life skills to develop children’s senses and learn about weather.
Children often have the opportunity to attend outings to local beaches, parks and wooded areas developing their skills to assess and manage risks to keep themselves safe and develop physical skills through movement and energetic play.
We ask if possible for each child to bring their own welly boots to nursery and a change of clothing. The nursery will provide appropriate waterproof clothing for all children to explore outdoors.
