Our Kindergarten caters for children from 2 years 9 months to 5 years of age. We have our main playroom, and we also benefit from the extensive grounds on the University campus.
Indoor learning space
Our indoor learning space is filled with natural light, offering a continuous connection to the outside environment. The indoor space is designed to ignite children’s curiosity and imagination through carefully selected provocations and offers a fun learning environment, which embed all learning styles, strengths and needs.
Outdoor learning and play
There is a growing body of research illustrating that young children’s access to nature and outdoor play is linked to improved self-esteem, physical, health, development of language skills and increased learning.
We believe in continuously extending the outdoor learning provision in our setting to offer all the children more possibilities to explore nature, develop a sense of wonder, and test their emotional and physical boundaries while assessing the risks.
Outdoor classroom and garden
We love to be outside at our kindergarten and we have an outdoor classroom to support this. This space offers a great area for children to play, explore and connect to nature. Our wider campus facilities provide the perfect setting for children to investigate and have fun walking through the woods and around the loch. We’ve also designed and planted herbs in our sensory garden and have access to our own allotment for growing potted fruit, flowers and vegetables.
