Outdoor play

There’s nothing better than enjoying the great outdoors, so at Little Ladybirds Day Nursery we make maximum use of our large outdoor play area and classroom.

Come rain (that’s what waterproofs were made for) or shine, the children in all our nursery rooms have access to this safe and secure area and we ensure they get outside as much as possible during the day.

We have purposefully designed the play area to promote learning through the freedom and challenges that only open space can provide.

You won’t find any plastic in our garden; instead we use natural resources and materials to stimulate the children through a range of sensory activities and physical play opportunities. This includes:

  • Mud kitchen
  • Water area, including various pipes and equipment for children to explore and experiment
  • Creative area
  • Construction area
  • Role-play shed
  • Walking and climbing equipment, including ramps and tyres.

Our under-2s also have their own separate baby garden to allow them to explore the outdoors safely until they are confident on their feet.

If you would like to view our outdoor play area and classroom, we would be only too pleased to show you, so please get in touch to make an appointment.
