At The Hills Preschool, our outdoor environment forms an extremely important component of our facilities. We provide a natural outdoor setting to help foster healthy, inquisitive, happy children.
We believe children deserve better than the cramped, generic, synthetic playgrounds that typify many centres. Our outdoor environment has been designed to reflect a natural backyard space that encourages children to engage in play based learning and activities. Children need regular time outside to explore and interact with their environment and our yard is set up to provide these invaluable opportunities.
Our yard includes a vegie garden, where the children grow their own produce, some of which we send home for families to use. Through participation in gardening and other outdoor adventures, we aim to equip children with an appreciation for nature and a genuine enjoyment of being outside.
