Out of School Area

We offer school drop offs and collections at neighboring schools, and have a dedicated space at Blossoms for our older children. We offer meals according to sessions and provide a nurturing environment for children to feel welcomed into before and after school. Children have access to a variety of both educational and fun activities such as cooking, getting creative, use of the computer, games and our outdoor spaces.

Outdoor Area

Our outdoor spaces are a valuable part of your child’s learning, which are used daily- whatever the weather. We have a large enclosed garden area which is mainly grass with some barked areas for children to explore nature, wildlife and mini beasts. Blossoms is set within a landscaped environment with trees and fresh air in abundance. Children get to explore all seasons and weather to teach them about changes, growth and life cycles throughout the year. Our outdoor space is an extension of our learning environment with lots of opportunities to develop language, turn taking, numbers, counting and forming relationships. From our mud kitchen where children can let their imagination run wild making mud pies, working with others to create and develop their own ideas to learning how to grow vegetables and care for plants and living things.

Physical exercise, health and well-being are promoted within our daily routines with opportunities to take part in physical play developing gross motor skills and encouraging healthy living. There is also a large park with physical play equipment located within 10 minutes walking distance. We take regular trips within our local environment for children to learn about the local community and help develop their sense of identity and self within the wider world.
