Outdoor play at Eastleigh Pre-school

Our pre-school

Your child will want to have lots of opportunities to be physically active and to build on their growing confidence and independence. They will learn about their environment through play, discovering how fast they can move, co-ordination and developing their imagination. 

We offer a spacious and stimulating indoor space and a large garden where your child will benefit from a mixture of child and adult led activities that enhance their learning and help them achieve their next steps. 

As your child grows, they will have daily opportunities to develop their confidence, independence and social skills.  We provide an exciting place for developing minds, where the outdoor environment allows your child to choose where they want to play and learn. They’ll climb, run, balance, jump, splash, explore books and build a den.  In our outdoor classroom, they’ll learn to problem solve, take risks, share ideas, develop language and have imaginative adventures.
