  • Outdoor facilities

    SAM_2661At Stone Eden we ensure all children of all ages have the opportunity to explore any of the three outdoor areas we have within our outstanding setting.

    Promoting healthy living is very important, ensuring all children get the chance to experience how to lead a healthy balanced lifestyle is paramount.

    Therefore bringing the inside out is what we do best, as we understand how much our children thrive off experiencing fresh air and from being in our stimulating and positive outdoor areas.

    Many people may question if we go outside in the cold and wet, but the answer is always YES, with appropriate clothing provided by parents/carers and a good pair of wellies are all your child needs to be happy outside, embracing the weather which enhances the opportunities already provided.

    As practitioners we embrace the many changes in our very unpredictable British weather, allowing all children to experience wind, rain, snow, sunshine, frost plus many more. Giving children the opportunity to experience the seasons on a hands on approach promotes development as we explore the environment around us.

  • Being outside is what children love therefore as practitioners we embrace this to promote learning, exploring our outdoor environment allows us to look at the trees, watch the seeds grow, feel the different textures and listen to the different sounds, feel the wind, rain and sunshine against our skin, learn about the world we live in, plus many more important development and life skills.

    Our rural setting is the perfect environment for us to be based in as we can soak up the nature surrounding us. Children become filled with excitement as our neighbouring farm vehicles pass by and give us a friendly wave.

    Children also love to take part in an exciting observation walk as practitioners take children to our neighbouring farm, spotting animals, habitats and creatures living in the fields and long grass.

    I love how much fresh air my child and friends receive, I also love watching my child explore the outdoor areas, she is always so excited to tell me about her day.

  • The children in Pre-school were very fortunate to see some Frogs today. They discussed how a Frog develops from a tadpole and how they feel and look. Next they will be looking at how a Caterpillar turns into a Butterfly.
  • Spring is here! Pre-school and Toddlers have been planting some beautiful flowers today on our orchard. The boys and girls have then made their own maps to find a fairy that has been hiding in the trees and searching for fairy mushrooms and acorns as clues. We have also been using the chalk boards to make marks and playing with the cars.
  • Wow look how well Dolphins can cut with scissors, a simple fine motor skills activity that keeps them busy for a long time and they were very proud of their achievments! Well done all ✂️✂️

  • Caterpillars have enjoyed washing the babies today. Staff and children interacted well and discussed the different body parts and facial features. The boys and girls pointed out where the eyes, nose and mouth were.
  • What a lovely day to be playing outside 🌞
  • Preschool really enjoyed time on the orchard this afternoon planting some plants in this glorious weather, spring is on its way. Have a lovely weekend everyone!
  • This morning in Caterpillars, Aimee carried out a baking activity with the children. The children were taking turns in adding the different ingredients to the bowl. They helped to mix the ingredients together and loved when it turned to dough
