Playdays Nursery has its own large outdoor area to the immediate rear of the nursery. We recognise the importance of outdoor play, and fully engage in taking the indoors out. The majority of our indoor activities and resources can be relocated to the outdoor area in good weather for the children to enjoy.
Our outside area is secure and only accessible from the nursery. It incorporates a large patio suitable for play, a vegetable patch, an artificial turf area, soft bounce area and a natural grassed lawn. There is also a nature corner which is ideal for exploration, making dens, bug hunting, mud pies and more.
Sun shades are erected in the summer months over the patio area to ensure protection from the sun, and we even go outdoors in colder weather too.
The children also participate in outings on a regular weekly basis away from the nursery, exploring our natural and local environment. One of our Pre-School outings is called ‘Forest Adventures’, which takes place at nearby Knettishall Heath. Here the children are encouraged to explore the outdoor environment, by taking nature walks and even building dens.
We have access to our local children’s centre where we have use of the sensory room. The children can also attend ‘Wiggle & Giggle’ story sessions within our local library.
