We have a beautiful secure children’s garden with wooden climbing frame, seesaw, sandpit, a 14ft trampoline and a ‘Pumpkin Cottage’. As well as a paved area for ride on toys, the garden boasts a large expanse of grass where children can run; practise their balancing, co-ordination, bat and ball skills and large motor skills. The children spend prolonged periods in the garden, often with classroom activities and snack taking place outside.
The Formal Gardens
Beyond the children’s garden we have extensive private grounds where your children can enjoy numerous activities such as woodland walks in the four seasons of the year and a large tennis court for physical play.
The Cottage Garden
Our Cottage Garden has numerous fruit trees as well as a vegetable plot tended by the children. The Pumpkin Patch Nursery has a dedicated qualified gardener who educates the children in the growing and care of plants and vegetables. Produce is picked, washed and prepared for healthy snacks.
