The children participate in various trips outside of nursery to broaden their experiences of the environment around us. We regularly take the children to the local library, Gnosall Park, the Children’s centre (situated within St Lawrence’s Primary School), Haughton Ice Cream Farm and local farms. The children also invited attend celebrations held within the Church such as Harvest Festival, Christingle, Nativity plays.etc.
All children are escorted by a high ratio of staff, wear high visibility jackets and wear reins where necessary. Risk assessments are carried out before every trip and parental consent is obtained before hand.
As well as trips out, we also invite different professionals into the nursery to talk about what they do. So far, we have visits from the fire brigade with their fire engine, the local farmer in his tractor, a dentist, a vet with a variety of animals and a nurse.
