Hungerford Nursery School is currently undergoing a project that will benefit all children’s outside experiences in our setting.
As a nursery school, we strongly believe that it is important for all children to be connected to the natural world and by offering children these experiences they become happier, healthier and creative. Being surrounded by nature, children experience an ever-changing and free-flowing environment that stimulates all the senses and encourage them to find out about the wider world around them. By developing our outside area we aim to promote children’s sensory experiences when learning outside. We aim to build a rich learning environment for children, covering all aspects of the Early Years framework and curriculum. This will offer new and exciting learning opportunities and allow children the experience to be at one with nature: exploring, investigating and finding out new information.
The garden project has been put onto the Good Exchange and we have received some very kind donations from local businesses and the Town and Manor. Every time anyone makes a donation to the Good Exchange, the Greenham Trust doubles it. So far (3 July 2019) we have raised £1,200, we are aiming to raise £5,000.
Here is a link to the Good Exchange: above is a plan of the garden area which we are developing.
