Children learn through play in a safe stimulating environment. The toys and equipment at Playgroup provide opportunities for children, with adult support, to develop new skills and concepts in the course of their play and exploration. The equipment we provide is appropriate for the ages and stages of the children and offers challenges to developing physical, social, personal and intellectual skills. The range of equipment will enable children to develop individual potential and move towards required learning goals.
A unique feature of the Playgroup is its extensive outdoor space. We are very proud of our sensory garden, which provides a safe, stimulating and tactile environment for the children to play in all year round. They are involved in all aspects of planting to help enhance their understanding of the outdoor world.
OUR THEME OF THE TERM IS HEALTHY LIVING AND GARDENS
We will be focusing on a growing garden and how to keep healthy and doing different activities including the 7 areas of learning.
These are just some of the many activities we have been up to and all of them include more than one area of learning. We all love to explore different things to play with and have a lot of choice!
