At Lynton we operate an "all weather free flow system". This means that all the children are given the choice to play and explore outdoors whenever they wish. We ask that all parents provide all the necessary accessories to enable their child to freely access the outdoors for example, suncream, sunhats, wellingtons, waterproofs, gloves etc.
Our outdoor area can be split in to three main parts:
The sensory area
This area is equipped to meet the children's sensory needs all year round, the children enjoy:
Growing, harvesting and eating our fruits and vegetables, exploring the built in ball pool, den making, story/quiet times, making mud pies, roasting marshmallows in our fire pit etc...
The active area
This area is always fast paced and energetic, the children are provided with climbing apparatus, cars, bikes, scooters, obstacle course making kits etc...
We have a new Outdoor Classroom, this is a valuable addition to the Garden, which allows all of the children to access outdoor learning and join in activities outdoors as well as indoors.
The Creative area
The children love to dig and explore in the large sand pit, investigate in the water tray, paint and create on the fences, make marks on the chalk boards etc...
