Diverse Learning Environments


Indoor Learning

Our indoor space is designed to encourage free play and creativity, with a cosy book corner to snuggle up and read, a fun home-corner where the children can play dress-up and 'make' tea, and a daily creative zone where they can engage in activities to celebrate festivals, holidays and other significant or topical events.

Our lunch-club sees all the children sit down to eat together with the staff. Children are encouraged to make healthy eating choices to set them up for the future.


Our Garden

We have a very strong belief in the importance of learning through play, particularly in the outdoors.  Being in the outdoors has all sorts of benefits for mental health and wellbeing, as well as utilising the natural environment to encourage creativity, exploration and discovery.

We are fortunate to have a fabulous garden and covered outdoor space meaning the children can spend time outside whatever the weather.

In recent years our fundraisers have paid for a new vegetable garden and greenhouse where the children can get involved in planting, growing and ultimately eating their own veg!


Forest School

At Merry Go Round we are lucky to have our own Forest School Leader who runs a weekly Forest School programme which we use to boost the personal, social and emotional development of children from the age of three.
