"The Town" is a space at the front of Nursery where the surface is paved, allowing outdoor play in all weathers.
The children can freely access the outdoor space when they wish on most days through the open doors at the front of Nursery. This allows them to experience the pleasure of indoor and outdoor play according to their own interest and mood.Of course, they are supervised by qualified staff at all times and their security is well-considered.
Play and learning opportunities in "The Town" feature a sand box, herb garden planted by the children and a large play den in the place the children call "Disley Street." Sometimes it's a house, other times a garden centre, garage, cafe and even a superhero hideout. Its up to the children to make it what they wish, aided by enthusiastic adults who are right there with them!
Recently, we added a new den which features an indoor digging station. It is cleverly and uniquely designed by Euan, our favourite handy-man (and an owner of the Nursery!) to also feature a drop down lid that doubles as a stage and sitting area for indoor story-time and puppet sessions.
No matter the weather, there are plenty of learning and development opportunities - and more importantly, chances to have fun and stretch imaginations! - outdoors in "Our Town."
