Our outdoor facilities

We have been blessed with really wonderful facilities. We have eight separate – fully equipped – outdoor playgrounds. Our back garden has four majestic pin oak trees that provide a shady space for the children to play. Our eco-garden is a new, exciting play area that was added in 2021.
