At Greenview Nursery we are committed to outdoor play in all weathers for all ages of children. All activities will be made accessible to children with special educational needs.
Children need regular access to outdoor play in order to develop their large and small muscles, experience an environment that is different to the inside of the nursery and more importantly access sunlight in order to absorb vitamin D more effectively. The outdoor areas, both within the nursery grounds and in the local community have a wealth of resources which help children to develop in a variety of ways, including independence, exploration and investigative skills, risk taking and self esteem all of which support children to develop skills for now and the future.
Our outdoor area is a classroom too as children learn more when they are fully engaged in their own initiated play. All the areas of the EYFS are covered outside and the outdoor area is set up each day based on the children's interests.
