Introducing our new Eco Wildlife Garden created for nature, calm, discovery and adventures…
We began planning and creating our Eco Wildlife Garden many months ago. We wanted to turn a large Sand pit into something extra special. Our experience has taught us that the children love to be outside and Kangaroo Kids Nursery children enjoy a great deal of natural garden space. We worked with a garden designer to create different sensory experiences with a sensory walkway and a variety of different textures and plants. The Wildlife Garden area is shaded and be can used for a variety of activities.
We play nature sounds and encourage the children to develop mindfulness skills by listening to the sounds to identify them or just by giving the children a moment of peace in a busy, stimulating day.
We teach lessons outside in the fresh air here during the cool months and we enjoy picnics together as a community. The children are making the space their own and we are listening to their ideas. They have told us they want to make an insect house and grow more plants.
In the soft beach sand there is a recycled wooden boat for adventures and for friendship to develop. The decking area was carefully sourced for its recycled properties and is made from recycled rubber. We have planted new trees and we are making flower beds within recycled tyres for organic gardening. The Eco Garden will grow and develop and the grass plants we have planted will create a secret garden within our large grounds for tranquillity and imagination…

I love the new garden arrangement, It is amazing and shows different environments.
I was fascinated yesterday when I saw the photos on Facebook and Malak explained to me that is planets going around the sun.
Thank you very much for your great efforts … much appreciated
