At Almond House your child will have access to spacious outdoor play-spaces. Our team are committed to our 'outdoors in all weathers' approach to play and learning because of the countless benefits to children. By spending time in our stimulating and engaging outdoor environment, your child will build their self-esteem, self-confidence and ability to engage and work together with others.
There are different sets of rules for outdoor play - children can be as loud as they like and run as fast as they want to. They can climb, jump, skip or roll around and get as messy as they need to. There are virtually no limits to the benefits that outdoor play can have for children so let's go outside!
Encouraging children to be active when they're young can improve their health throughout life. Fresh air and exercise encourage development and stimulate brain cells.
Outdoor play helps children to develop their coordination and gain control of their bodies through running, jumping and climbing. They gain more confidence in their abilities and a stronger self-image.Get in touch »
Outdoor play gives children the opportunity to use all their senses. Nature provides a variety of sights, smells and textures. Exploring the environment fosters children's natural curiosity about the world and makes them active and inquisitive learners.
Responsibility and Risk Taking
Outdoor play exposes children to more choices and risks than play indoors. This teaches children responsibility and they learn to identify and avoid danger, helping to keep them safe.Get in touch »
