Muddy Munchkins & Kit List


Our aim at Sunbeams Nursery is to give children the freedom and opportunity that previous generations took for granted. Despite the cultural shift away from outdoor play and learning, it remains essential to children’s health, development and well-being.

We take 4 groups of children each week to a woodland area near West Parley to experience nature and engage with the outdoors and the elements. Through this interaction with the world around them the children learn to use initiative, develop language faster, problem solve and assess risks. Physical activity and movement are enhanced; co-operative and collaborative play is a fundamental addition to their learning.
