Our large garden offers a range of play and educational activities within a secure, stone walled area. The Pumpkin Patch Nursery has a dedicated qualified gardener who educates the children in the growing and care of plants and vegetables. Produce is picked, washed and prepared for healthy snacks.
Not only do we educate our children outside, but we also encourage a range of play opportunities. The garden has a paved area for ride on toys, a large expanse of grass where the children can run around and practise their balancing, coordination, bat and ball skills and large motor skills. We also have ‘Pumpkin Cottage’, a wooden climbing frame, a seesaw, sandpits and a 14ft trampoline. The children spend prolonged periods in the garden, often with classroom activities and snacks taking place outside.
