Our Gardens

When creating our gardens the intention was not only to create additional play areas for the children, but also to help them learn the life-cycle of plants and to enjoy constructive outdoor activities.

  The Beach Garden  Bringing the sea-side into the garden, all the children love to play in the sand, especially during the spring and summer days. When the weather permits, the paddling pool completes the beach theme.

  The Forest Garden  Providing a woodland experience, this area is left as natural as possible, allowing children to “bake” mud pies in the mud kitchen; making dens, pretending to be bears and re-enacting fairy tales.

  The Planting Garden   Children learn to plant and harvest vegetables and herbs. Later, they help prepare and to cook the food they have grown

  The Fossil Garden   Travelling back to prehistoric times, the children discover the patterns of the rocks and search for “fossils”, some of which are picked from the Dorset Jurassic Coast.
