Outside Play

We at TLC acknowledge the importance of children getting out and about, exercising or simply breathing fresh air on a daily basis. We will therefore ensure that outings are a regular feature of your child's day, with visits to local parks, shops or other places of interest.

TLC benefits from a large well equipped secure garden, which has a grassed and also another area, which has been surfaced using 'Playtop' rubberised safety surfacing. Here the children can safely play and climb on the various activity toys provided. The children are involved in both organised games and have the freedom to enjoy their own play. This garden overlooks the canal and we have created a viewing point in order that the children can enjoy looking at swans of the many passing barges or boats. The children delight in waving to passengers on the passing boats.



Our pre-school and 2-3 age group benefit from having their own outside area, which they can easily access from their own rooms.  During the warmer weather the children are encouraged to spend as much time as possible outdoors and staff plan specific activities, which are best suited to outside play.


Although babies do spend time in the other gardens - our baby room has patio doors, which lead on to it's own garden area.
