We are extremely lucky to have a large nursery garden. We have a large planting and crop area, where the children are supported by John and Karen the gardeners. They visit the nursery and work with the children to help grow lots of different fruit and vegetables. The crops are then used by the nursery chef for our healthy and nutritious meals that our chef Nicky cooks.
The garden is the heart of Pinocchio’s Eskbank and the children love to take part in all the experiences. The garden hosts a tennis court, tepee, numeracy and literacy areas, mud kitchen, road, construction area, block play, water and sand. The children use a wide selection of loose parts resources which allow them to problem solve, work as a team, become successful learners and take part in risky play.
