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 says. When the weather permits, the paddling pool completes the beach theme.

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