Learning & developing

Our policy on outdoor play

All children will be given the opportunity to play outside throughout most of the day whatever the weather. It is important that you dress your child for nursery appropriately; warm clothes and waterproof coat when it’s cold and wet; sun hat and sun screen when it’s sunny.

Children get wet, muddy and messy when they play outside. We can provide protective clothing for them to wear, including waterproofs and a few wellington boots, although ideally we ask our parents / carers to provide these things for your child – making sure that they are named.

We teach children how to minimise how messy they get and they do get better at this as they get older, but it is part of their learning and development – you can’t expect them not to get messy playing in mud.

We will not compromise on allowing children to play outdoors as we believe it is an essential component of young children’s learning and development.

Our Motto is ‘Children First’
