The playroom has a variety of toys, books, craft and Montessori learning materials that allow children to develop knowledge and skills as according to the principles and learning objectives of the EYFS, while closely following the Montessori philosophy of “following the child”.
The garden is a safe and secure space for the children to play and develop physical skills outdoors. It includes play equipment and toys, water and sand play, a mud kitchen, playhouse and a variety of planned activities to meet children’s learning needs. We grow fruit and vegetables and have a wild garden where we plant wildflower seeds.
The setting is eco-friendly providing a range of activities and resources that will give children a wider knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live. This includes minimal use of plastic in the setting, such as using mostly wooden toys and recycling materials. Children can help to make bug hotels, bird boxes and bird feeders to place in the wild garden.
