Outdoor Play

‘We believe that outdoor learning is essential to children’s health,
development and well-being.’

At Smarties Day Nursery outdoor learning compliments indoor learning and is equally important. Play and learning that flow seamlessly between indoors and outdoors enable children to make the most of resources and materials available to them and develop their ideas without unnecessary interruption. Consequently, it is vital that as an early years setting we maximise the children’s opportunities outdoors.

We aim to use our whole environment as an extension to our indoor classrooms so the children can freely use both indoors and outdoors. Children are happiest when outside and thrive in the natural environment.  We make sure our children get every opportunity to be outside whatever the weather with the appropriate clothing.

“There is no such thing has bad weather, only bad clothing!” 

The outdoor facility has an 1/2 acre of ground with an amazing maze, willow dome, hills and a ‘mud kitchen’ for children to explore the natural habitat. One of the benefits of being outside, encourage children to be physically healthy.
