Outdoor play and experiences form an integral part of the nursery day. Many children today miss out on valuable childhood experiences due to the risk adverse society that we live in. It goes without saying that children must be safeguarded, but too much protection can hinder development, depriving them of opportunities to discover and understand their world. Children must learn how to asses risk for themselves.
At Little Rascals we aim to encourage and inspire children through positive outdoor experiences. We believe only in inappropriate clothing and not inappropriate weather. We have a nursery minibus which enables us to take the children on regular outings such as Twycross Zoo, Twin Lakes, White Post Farm and many other great places. Local facilities are also well utilised with trips to local parks, Libraries, Swimming baths and museums.
