The Orchard Room has a specially designed space to accommodate the needs of the younger children.
The atmosphere is homely and nurturing and, like the Nursery School, the Orchard Room has an ‘entitlement’ environment enabling children to access the resources they require freely, both indoors and outside if developmentally appropriate. This encourages the children to move around independently, making their own choices and decisions about their play and learning experiences.
The Orchard Room is situated on the ground floor and opens out into the garden. The outside environment is a beautifully designed shared resource for both age ranges. The garden is available for children to use throughout the sessions, enabling them to choose whether they would like to play and learn indoors or out.
The whole environment is planned to provide a variety of learning experiences for children.
