Here at the Community Greenhouses we fully understand the importance of learning about the world through play. Our sessions designed for pre-school children explore the environment and living things using all the senses.

Activities might include: listening ears walks, texture trails, colour snap games, minibeast hunts or snail racing, storytelling sessions, making a butterfly mask, creating a scarecrow, sowing and growing or simply tasting some of the many fruits, herbs and vegetables that we grow in our gardens.

The garden is constantly changing through the seasons meaning each visit will be different with new things to experience and an evolving range of natural materials available for art and craft activities.

We also offer outreach sessions so if you have a gardening club in need of inspiration, or you’d like to build a minibeast hotel or go on a spider safari for example in your own outdoors space, we can come out to you.

All activities are linked to EYFS learning goals and are risk assessed.
