Outdoor play is a one of the key things that makes Tick Tock Nursery so special. The children benefit from the nursery’s outdoor area and Moor Park School’s extensive grounds. We really make the most of our rural surroundings. The youngest children benefit from supervised buggy walks around the grounds, discovering the magic, which can be found in the fields! The children also enjoy feeding the chickens and finding the terrapins in the pond.
Outdoor play gives a different type of freedom compared to indoor activities. For example, children can hop, skip, jump, run and balance which are all great activities to promote physical well-being. The outdoor environment is flexible and children have control over it. The Butterfly Room also have free-flow access to the outdoor area.
Outdoors provides a multi-sensory environment even without adult interaction or enhancement. As soon as children step outside their senses are enlivened by noise, birds, leaves rustling etc, cold or hot on their faces from the sun/wind, water from rain/snow.
The environment provides ideal opportunities for children to learn about the world around them and they are encouraged to become involved in planting seeds and caring for their resources. Older Butterfly children also have the opportunity to attend our special ‘Woodland School’ sessions, alongside Nursery and Kindergarten children.
I am sure you will be impressed by the high quality facilities within the setting. We are dedicated to offering high quality care and education for all. I look forward to welcoming you to Tick Tock in the near future to discuss your childcare requirements in further detail.
