Prior to trips commencing parents consent is always obtained, risk assessments completed and trips are carried out in line with our policies and procedures. The safety of the children is paramount to Little Angels at all times.
The pre-school have so far visited the fire station, bus and train rides, visiting the farm, the beach and much more. We invite others companies into the setting to talk to the children about guide dogs, healthy eating, cleaning teeth and we have professional story tellers who come in too.
The baby and toddler room go on many trips to the park, play areas, beach and the zoo. The babies enjoy walks in their prams, seeing the wildlife, playing in the sand area and looking at all the magic around them. We believe in children having lots of fresh air, it has been proven by many theorists, that it will help to enhance children's well bring and development.
The holiday club the children enjoy going to the beach to play games and paddle in the sea, they love going to different parks where we can feed the wildlife and learn all about nature.
A photograph day takes place every November so that you have the chance to purchase their memory photographs, we also hold a special graduation day photograph for preschool in July each year.
You may ask, "How do the trips enhance my childs learning?"
Well, the outdoor environment offers space and therefore is particularly important to those children who learn best through active movement. Very young children learn predominately through their sensory and physical experiences which supports brain development and the creation of neural networks.
The outdoor environment is an essential part of high quality provision for babies, toddlers and young children. Effective use of outdoors supports delivery of all four themes within the Early Years Foundation Stage:
1. A Unique Child
2. Positive Relationships
3. Enabling Environments
4. Learning and Development.
Children gain enormous benefits from learning outdoors. At Little Angels all children have have access to outdoor space on a daily basis – regardless of all except the worst weather. Being outdoors allows them to move around without many of the restrictions of being inside. They can fill their lungs with clean air and use all of their senses to appreciate the colours, different noises, the sense of space and of scale. Being outdoors supports confidence and allows opportunities for big scale play, problem-solving and creativity in the company of other children. Physical activity is enhanced. So is calculated risk taking.
The outdoors supports active learning and when balanced with quiet areas for reflection can really enhance children’s learning.
