Our New Garden Space!

We’ve finally completed our new garden space at our Shard End setting and doesn’t it look great!

Shard End now have 3 fantastic garden play areas, including one specifically designed for our small babies.

Staff have been making the most of the new garden and planning specific and exciting activities to encourage children’s learning in the outdoor environment.

Children in Toddlers have spent time planting seeds and digging for mini beasts, while our Pre School children solved clues to find objects in the garden. All of the children have also been getting creative by painting stones and making collage pictures with natural resources.

Although we’ve enjoyed wearing our raincoats and wellies and jumping in muddy puddles, we can’t wait to spend more time outside now in the sunny weather!
