Children’s joy and happiness is a big part of their learning. At Little Oaks Day Nursery, we encourage them to have fun as a part of their education, with child-led activities which are adapted to their abilities and interests.
The foundation for all activities and opportunities is available to children both indoors and outdoors.
We have recognised the need for stimulating outdoor areas to support children learning and we have designed the outdoors areas to ensure there are various areas which enable all groups of children to access the outdoors and introduced a variety of outdoor resources and equipment to promote all areas of children’s learning and development.
It is from these principles listed that early year’s practitioners at Little Oaks Day Nursery use to plan, create, implement and provide appropriate opportunities for children’s development and personal growth in both indoor and out door environments.
Our aim is to ensure that every individual child’s needs are met, and they are encouraged to develop in their own time at their own pace.
The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is reflected in the activities and opportunities on offer to the children in the outdoors area throughout the day.
We encourage and provide outside areas for the older children to experience planting flowers and vegetables and just generally getting messy digging in the mud this is loved by all.
The outdoor areas provide many natural materials and resources for children to extend their learning for example communication, Language and literacy can be promoted in the garden with the use of a few little twigs or sticks and a small patch of mud as the children can be encouraged to make marks and patterns.
Or by using pots of water and paint brushes to make pictures. By providing these opportunities to the children we are ensuring we meet and support all the children’s differing learning styles.
