Our Childcare Montessori Preschool Creche

The outdoor Environment

A rich and varied outdoor environment supports childrens’ learning and development. It gives the children the confidence to explore and learn in a secure and safe yet challenging, outdoor space. Being outdoors has a positive impact on childrens’ sense of well-being and helps all aspects of childrens development.

Being outdoors offers opportunities for doing things in different ways and on different scales than indoors. It gives children first-hand contact and knowledge of  the weather, the seasons and the natural world.The outdoor environment offers children freedom to explore and use their senses, and be physically active and exuberant.


Toddlers Garden

The toddlers garden is equipped with a soft all weather grass surface, a small climbing frame, slide, playhouse, see-saws and outdoor toys.


Busy Bees garden

The busy bees garden is a large outdoor play area. It is equipped with a safe all weather grass surface, a large tree house with slide, purpose built swings, see-saw goal posts and a basketball hoop. There is a picnic area with a large picnic table .The garden has a wide range of outdoor toys; cars, bikes, bats and balls, table tennis, volley ball and much more.


Natures Garden

This is a natural garden in which the children plant, nurture and harvest plants and flowers. They learn how the natural environment works and reproduces in a practical manner. We encourage the children to use the natural environment in their daily activities. In autumn we use the fallen leaves for art and crafts. In summer the children partake in lots of activities outdoors, art and crafts, water and sand play, circle time, story time, gardening street games,etc.
