The Nature Kindergarten Project involves us in taking our children into wooded areas and allowing them to run around, play, learn and explore.
Balbirnie Park is an ideal situation for this. We have identified an area within it which will suit the purpose. Health and Safety is important and the appropriate risk assessments have been undertaken.
Dates for this term : Morning children - Tuesday 7th, 14th and 21st November
Afternoon children- Friday 10th and 24th November and 1st December
Meeting / Collection point - Balbirnie car park
am session - 8.45am - 11.30am
pm session - 12.45pm - 3.30pm
As stated above this is not a walk in the woods, but an opportunity to allow children to explore, investigate and develop independence skills. We try to stand back and allow the children to do the above with as little interaction from an adult as possible. Parents are very welcome to sign up and join a session in the Woods.
Please can you ensure that children are dressed appropriatley for the Woods. Layers, waterproofs, hats, wellies, extra socks and gloves will help the children to be comfortable and happy when learning and playing outdoors. We have waterproof trousers in the Nursery foyer that you can borrow for your child if you wish.
