Leeds, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 11, 2009 -- A Leeds childcare company has been awarded a government grant to create classrooms outdoors. The âQuality Grantâ will help Daisy Chain Childcare Ltd provide top class learning environments to help children under five to learn through their outdoor play.
The Nurseries based in Rothwell, Lofthouse and Adel aim to create interesting and unusual learning environments, making learning fun (nursery photographs can be found on new company website: http://www.daisychainchildcare.com).
Equipment will include dark dens, sensory areas, messy materials, challenging physical areas, living willow tunnels, cosy story areas with wooden thrones and stump stools, wooden sculptures, wobble boards, playhouses, minibeast trap doors and worm farms to name but a few items.
Julie Spalding, nursery manger at the Lofthouse nursery said, âItâs great to be working in conjunction with a company called âOutdoor Classroomsâ who provide all of the wooden equipment, hand made from sustainable sources, as this fits really well with our companyâs green policy.
Iâm sure the children attending Daisy Chain will benefit greatly from their new outdoor classrooms.
Outdoor play is a key part of a childâs development and these new areas not only take into account the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum but most importantly they are great fun.
The children will also be involved in planting and growing their own vegetables to help promote healthy eating. Shaded soft play areas will also allow babies as young as three months to join in the outdoor fun activities.
The children will also be introduced to robotics with age appropriate robot kits.â Daisy Chain Childcare Ltd caters for children aged from three months to school age and is registered to give Nursery Education Grant for children over three. All Daisy Chain Childcare nurseries have OFSTED judgements of GOOD or above.
