At Childsplay the garden is an extension of the playroom and many aspects from the curriculum can be extended or introduced in the environment.
Each room has its own fire exit and therefore entrance to the garden, there is also a separate garden area for the under two's.
In the good weather a large portion of the day is spent outside either engaging in physical activities or quiet activities such as reading, drawing etc.
We believe strongly in enabling children to play freely with, in and around natural environments. Our garden is resourced to encourage this with our digging area, mud kitchen, bug hotel, vegetable patch and flower garden. We also provide opportunity for children to participate in physical play helping them to learn to assess their own risk, meet new challenges and most of all have lots of energetic fun.
