Sensory garden at Hungerford Nursery School – November 2019 update

November 2019 Update

Currently nearly £5,400 has been raised leaving about £600 to go. Donations can most efficiently be made through the Good Exchange website (see October).

The garden will be officially opened on Thursday 14 November 2019 by Stacey Tuttle, who designed it, and Amelia Beacham, the staff member who was so closely involved in realising the project.

October 2019 Update

The Hungerford Nursery School Sensory Garden is almost finished and includes a pond with a rill and aquaduct alongside textured pathways. Donations from The Town & Manor, Tesco, Rotary, The Town Council and many others have helped to get the garden this far but more money is needed for the special plants and grasses to finish it off.  Donations via the Good Exchange doubles the contribution through match funding.

We are also looking for plants to plant the garden. If you have a spare plant in your garden or an extra hour to plant a plant, we would be happy to hear from you. Contact details are below.

A grand opening is planned for 14th November 2019.

Background

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.
