Natural materials, loose parts and objects reflecting the home are an integral part of our environment and feature heavily in our resources and furniture throughout the nursery.
Resources are chosen to create a sense of wonder, to captivate and invite the children in. They encourage conversation, exploration, creativity and open ended opportunities. Resources are carefully planned for to enable different areas of learning that enriches daily experience and broadens further future development.
Each natural resource stimulates the senses in their own special way, from the hard cool rock to the prickly fir cone. All our areas and resources offer an opportunity to engage and allow the child to develop the resource use according their interests, motivations or theme being explored.
