Our large natural environment with trees, plants, grass and sand allow the children to have fun, explore, investigate, play and learn.

Our pets consist of chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and fish which provide the children with a hands on nurturing experience as they feed, pet and care for the animals.

The environment provides areas for quiet reflection, social interaction and active play opportunities
