Outdoor Learning



We have created a small nature area on our premises with the help of the local Rotary Club and a grant from Tescos.

The area is to give children the opportunity to learn some life skills: planting bulbs, keeping the area tidy, learning about the nature. It also gives more opportunities for outdoor learning, through play, listening to environmental sounds, enjoying stories in the outdoors and experiencing the many types of weather in Queensbury.

In the future, this will be looked after by our gardening club and a place where children can escape the indoors and enjoy fresh air and a change of scenery. We feel that our children's mental health will greatly benefit from this.

Watch this space for photos to come in the spring time...
