Our Nature Nook is located within our garden and is used daily for snack time and lunch times in the warmer weather days and via a timetable by our outdoor co-Ordinator Miss Kelly during the week. We are a free flow setting and after registration is done, the door to the main garden will be open for the remainder of the day for the children to access indoors or outdoors as they please. Children learn best through play and we find that where we have access to indoors or outdoors at all times, throughout their day that we get more out of the children during our teachable moments in a fun and exciting way.

In our Nature Nook area we learn about nature, animals and bugs, and the changing of the seasons.
We plant various flowers in their so that we have somewhere for our caterpillars that we get every year to go when they become butterflies. We talk to the children about why the butterflies need the flowers and teach them about lots of other life cycles too! Such as birds which we learn first hand after various birds nest in our Nature Nook area.

We grow our own vegetables such as carrots, onions, cucumbers, pumpkins and our own fruits such as strawberries and many more! The children are included in the whole process from planting the seeds, to watering them daily and to picking the final produce and then the best bit, tasting the final fruit or vegetables! 

We also learn to care for our animals, insects and the plants and flowers that we grow here. We feel this area is a good area for teachable moments with the children where they can learn via experience and is also lots of great fun too!

Our Nature Nook is based inside our main garden:
