Inside and Outside
The nursery environment indoors and outdoors is designed to enable children to develop the independence and confidence they need to become really engaged in their learning.
Resources are clearly labelled and stored to enable children to get them out and put them away themselves.
In this way, they can make choices about what to use and when to use it, whilst developing a sense of responsibility and care towards their classroom.
Children are able to access a wide range of learning areas including, among others, writing and mark-making, computers, sand, water, blocks, role play and an extensive creative area.
The outdoor area is seen as an integral part of the nursery’s provision and it has been planned to enable those children who prefer to learn outside for some or most of the time to engage in the same quality of learning as they would indoors.
