At Treehouse we have an established culture of outdoor learning. We ensure that children have daily opportunities to explore the natural environment and have time and space to play together.
We recognise the importance of outdoor play in promoting a healthy lifestyle and to create a true sense of well-being. The children experience the wonders of nature and the changing seasons at first hand, as we are fortunate enough to have excellent facilities on our door step with the park situated across the road and also some local nature trails close by. Outdoor play is an important part of learning to assess risk, build resilience as well as physical development.
All children must have access to fresh air and physical exercise; we will not exclude any child from playing outdoors.

Outdoor learning which allows the children to take risks in a safe and secure environment is embedded into our daily routine. This provides the children with the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of learning experiences in all weathers. Not only do the children benefit from the fresh air and exercise that comes with outdoor play but it helps develop a healthy appetite, promote sound sleep and develop better physical movement and co-ordination keeping them fit and healthy.
All parents must provide appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather. Weather-proof Jackets, Wellington Boots, Hats, Scarves, Sun Hats, cream etc must be provided for your child. We also would like to remind parents that a change of clothing should always be provided for your child. Nursery uniforms are also available to purchase.
We working in partnership with our local community – Being part of a bustling community from the early years helps children to see how communities work and how they can contribute allowing for endless learning opportunities, care home visits, local businesses, fresh produce, local library, doctors, dentist.
