We have a special surface that is soft for young children and also this surface allows children to play out when the weather is unkind without getting muddy.
As the garden is small the children do not all go out at the same time, they go out in their groups at different times of the day.
We have an area in the garden where children can plant seeds and play in the mud. We also have sand and water play activities, the sand is covered after use and is changed monthly, and the water is disgarded after each use. The garden has a playhouse, a climbing frame and slide, and lots of other equipment to promote physical development.
