We are blessed with a wide selection of venues and activities all within walking distance. That enables us to cover all aspects of the children’s learning whilst retaining the flexibility to decide what to do each day according to the weather, the children’s mood or the chance to explore further a question of interest we might have been talking about. Occasionally we might swap days (go to a “regular” venue on a different day), and for outings outside of these regular activities parental permission will be asked.
 
Isn't there just so much to do??
