The best way to view our setting is knelt down and at the children’s height. It’s their setting, they use it, they learn in it and they have lots of fun. You might not find hanging bits and pieces or vibrant colours at our eye level but you will see resources arranged independently for children to access, natural materials to link the inside with the outside environment and prompts to encourage self-reliance.
We already have an amazing outdoor space as we share and use the great grounds of the Primary School. Each child has an outdoor waterproof suit (dungarees) and jacket and we have heaps of pairs of wellies so that we can get out no matter what the weather. We had great fun in the first flurry of snow in 2017 but we also love the rain, especially when it drips from the old edging on the station and lands on our heads!!
