Kingswood Indoor Outdoor Play Environments
Our Play Environments
At Innovative Early Learning we offer stimulating and enriching environments where children can feel at home with their educators and friends as they learn and play. Our outdoor play environment features a purpose built rock river, and a fruit and vegetable garden, natural plants that the children love to take care of, varied climbing equipment, play and sports equipment. We aim to make this area as natural as possible.
Children are given opportunities to engage in water play, use the mud kitchen, have story times, play ball games, draw and paint and participate in garden to kitchen experiences where they grow their own vegetables and herbs which they then prepare for afternoon tea meals or proudly take what they have grown home to their families. This is also a great way to introduce sustainability and environmental learning to our children which we place a big emphasis on. We also offer daily and weekly excursions for our 2-5 year olds to the large, open green space located next to our centre, providing children with the opportunity to play ball games.
Our location to this green space makes access easy, accessible and safe, giving the children a chance to view wildlife and explore their surroundings, have nature hunts and play group games. Nature play significantly improves all aspects of child development – physical, cognitive, social and emotional. Playing outdoors grows resilience, self-confidence, initiative, creativity and more.
We also have a connection with Kingswood Park School and children who are preparing to go to school next year participate in their orientation day.
