Kindergarten Outdoor Time
The natural world and outdoor play are a key part of daily Kindergarten life.
Children in our school thrive on daily outdoor experiences in all weathers. The garden area encompasses a purpose-built outdoor shelter which can be used for woodwork and other tasks. It also houses an earth oven where the children bake bread and a ‘sound garden’ where children can explore making music in different ways. We have a separate garden curriculum to complement our indoor activities, which involves meaningful work and special projects.
Twice a month the older children enjoy outings to Alexandra Park and the Meadow Orchard Nature Reserve, observing seasonal changes and exploring the natural environment as well as cooking and enjoying snack around a camp fire.
