Information: Outdoor Provision

Our Children have continuous access for long periods of the day to the outdoor provision. There is a sheltered area and we have all weather clothing so the children can access the area whatever the weather.

Outside, the children have continuous access to sand, water, painting, digging and planting area, bikes, scooters, prams, tyres, small home corner, cars and garage, mark making and slide. Then, the children can choose from a range of resources from our toy shed including small world, bats and balls, dressing up gear and a large range of role play apparatus including firemen, car wash, camping, picnic, builders, baby box, painters and decorators and lots of den making equipment.

The children love going on bug hunts and using the magnifying glasses to investigate what they find and we recently had caterpillars that we watched change into cocoons and then butterflies and the children loved watching them fly off outside once we had looked after them for a few days. The children again use all the resources outdoors to create their own learning environments and imaginary situations.
