Welcome to Playpen Nursery


Outdoor Learning Outdoor Learning
Our nursery garden provides a safe space for children to explore, problem solve and develop their imagination. We ensure outdoor play is part of our everyday routine, with the children spending at least 2 hours outside every day. Our outdoor classroom provides shelter from the sun and rain to enjoy group games, stories and arts and crafts while still enjoying access to the outdoors.
Working Together
From a young age, the children are developing social skills which allows them to build relationships and work as part of a team. The children use natural, everyday materials to build dens and structures which allow them to climb and practice their balancing skills. The children are encouraged to assess and manage the risks involved for themselves while supported by the adults around them.

What rain? What rain?
The children love spending time outdoors no matter what the weather. The nursery has its own supply of waterproof suits which allow the children to play in water, dig in the mud and jump and splash in muddy puddles while staying warm and dry.
