Other facilities information
We spend a lot of time outside in the garden or local area. In my garden there is a mud kitchen, tuff tray, sandpit, water play, ride-ons, push-alongs, active play equipment, large wooden blocks, easel and early learning activities. We have an allotment which children visit regularly during the Spring, Summer and Autumn and occasionally during the Winter to learn about planting and growing food. We use the vegetable in our healthy meals. When possible, we have days or mornings out to woods, beaches, parks, museums, castles concerts, cinema and theatres. Indoors I have a home corner, book corner, block area, music/dance area, sensory area, messy play and mark making /art areas.

In order to preserve the family atmosphere, I give priority to children who live within the local area. This means they can remain with us when they start pre school and school. It also means that they can arrive on foot.
