Our Setting

Have a look around our setting – we are a pack-away preschool, meaning we can use our space as creatively as we want to. Typically, we zone the room with an area for whole group time where we take part in welcome time, games and singing, as well as a craft zone, reflection area and a book corner. We use other areas to encourage mark making, role play, maths and personal and social development by setting up interesting and varied activities. We are often cooking, and have a dedicated outdoor garden for playing in and growing vegetables, fruit and flowers depending on the season, which we then like to cook with too!

Our Garden Area

We love to make use of our dedicated outdoor space every day to support our children’s learning and development. We grow our own fruit and vegetables as well as bulbs and seeds depending on the season, and often cook with what we have produced too! Our garden is a blank canvas, meaning we can use it in a variety of inventive ways to suit our children’s interests. We have held football tournaments, bike races, and obstacle courses, as well as using it for forest school activities.

Our Allotment

We are also lucky to have an allotment based at the Talbot Road Allotment Site. Here we experience more planting and growing opportunities as well as forest school activities. We have a dedicated digging bed, a sensory garden to compliment our mud kitchen, and a soft fruit and winter vegetable patch, along with lots of resources to help us experience and appreciate the natural world.
