This video allows learners to follow the experiences of young children who attend an outdoor nursery, where the focus is on the natural environment and outdoor play. The children have opportunity to visit the beach and go on nature walks on a regular basis, and are encouraged to explore the world around them.
The children at this nursery spend a lot of their time in the garden, where they can play, grown vegetables, experience insects and weather. They often have lunch outdoors, which staff can cook over the safe fire pit, which fuels interest and excitement
The children are actively encouraged to participate in the planning and evaluation of the activities within the nursery. This is considered essential in helping the children build bonds and relationships with all of the children and people involved in the life of the nursery.
