My Garden Area
Babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers explore the natural world around our homes and gardens. Free play and exploration is focused on encouraging children to be curious and peek through holes, pull and turn knobs, put on dress ups, ask questions and become involved in sustained interactive play with others. Play may include adults who can guide, support and inform children though play whatever they are interested in with ‘talking points’ around the room near different and relevant play as a reminder to share a little about the object of their and their children’s interests. The focus is on using many different senses while the play and explore.
