A Day at Muddy Boots Nursery School
The children have daily outdoor learning walks where they can explore our beautiful surroundings at the beach and in the large open spaces available in Hamworthy.
They will have access to free flow all day, allowing them to be independent in the large open indoor and outdoor space.
Children are able to explore in the sand pit, build their imagination in the role play area, improve their language and communication skills in the mud kitchen, develop their creativity, literacy and writing skills in the creative area and learn their sounds and develop a love for reading in the cosy book corner.
The children will be encouraged to become aware of looking after themselves and grow their own vegetables and fruit in our Muddy Boots allotment. Throughout the nursery day, the children will be learning so much without even realising!
