Learning Beyond The Classroom
At Muddy Boots we strongly believe in the ethos of outdoor learning. When children are in the great outdoors they are able to be that little bit noisier, messier, bigger and faster. Allowing them to feel confident and happier. The outdoors is a place to learn about, and experience the weather - wind, rain, snow or sun - and to explore the natural world of minibeasts and plants. Children also develop personal and social skills in the open air, by staff encouraging independence children feel they can take risks, meaning they negotiate, cooperate, assess possibilities and dangers and take control of their own learning.
Outdoor learning offers the children the chance to connect with the natural world, have first hand experiences of life and growth, have endless opportunities for creativity and imagination, outdoor learning improves fitness and physical development, these are just some of the many benefits of outdoor learning that really have a positive impact on children's lives.
Children will have access to daily outdoor learning walks, out and around the community, accessing nature reserves, woodland areas, the beach, the park, local library, and local fields.
At Muddy Boots Nursery School we believe that children should have the best possible start in life. We believe that the education they receive in their early years will shape their future successes and their future education pathway. Therefore we aim to provide the highest quality early learning experiences. These experiences will be provided both within the nursery and out in the community by offering a safe, secure and happy environment in which children feel confident and develop a love for learning. The children will be supported by an experienced inspiring workforce team with a shared philosophy of learning, who are committed to offering the highest quality care to all children and their families.
