Outdoor Play

At Merdyn we are spoilt for choice with outdoor facilities. All children enjoy time to explore, imagine, create and be physical in one of our outdoor environments on a daily basis.

Eco Garden

Children from our Pre-School rooms are given the opportunity to extend their learning, creativity and imagination all in one exciting place. They can explore the outside world safely in our ‘Eco Garden’ where they are encouraged to contribute to the development of our nature area by using their own ideas and imaginations. Will they create an area to welcome fairies into the garden? Or would they like to plant a specific type of flower? All this creativity combined with the benefits of outdoor play in the fresh air improve focus and increase a child’s self-esteem.


At the rear of the setting we have a large play area. The children have access to bikes, scooters and ball games. We have separate areas for digging, slides and climbing and a dedicated covered area for activities including role play and construction. This area also enables us to ensure that children have an outdoor facility regardless of weather.

Front Garden

We have a fully grassed and fenced in area at the front of the nursery. We have large parasols to offer shade in the summer, climbing frames and play houses. The children enjoy summer picnics and creative messy activities in this area throughout the summer months.
