As well as outdoor play we take children on regular walks around the local village, where they can develop their knowledge of and interest in the local community. We also go on regular trips to the local woodland area with as this offers children the opportunity to really experience the natural world, take risks and use their imaginations in a different environment. Parent/ carer consent is sought before we take children out on walks or outings.
families join us for walks around the village whenever they like!

Loxley Nursery is situated right in the countryside with fields on our doorstep! We visit our local allotments daily, pick vegetables to bring back to nursery, feed the chickens at the allotments, buy local produce from the family run post office, and take food to feed animals on our walks such as the local horses. Every staff member is fully level 3 Paediatric First Aid trained and is able to offer medical assistance at any point while we are out in the local area.
