Outdoor Environments

An important part of a child’s development is their activity in the outdoor environment. Our indoor and outdoor environments are well designed and integrated to enable children to extend their social skills through co-operative interaction. Concepts explored with classroom materials are applied to the wider outdoor environment, which provides a number of hard and soft landscaped spaces for children to explore and enjoy.
