outdoor activities for children

We are now fundraising for a range of outdoor equipment to promote our children's health, well-being and independence. We strongly believe that children should have the opportunity to play outside in all weathers and freely explore their environment independently.

September 2014 - July 2015

  • Need


    We need to purchase a mobile cloakroom unit so that children can change into raincoats and wellies independently, understanding the need for appropriate clothing. We want them to be able to choose from a range of resources such as gardening equipment, outdoor construction materials, sand and water play and a mud kitchen which will enhance their learning and promote their critical thinking and understanding of their environment.
