Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Natural Play!


Here at Leigh’s Nurseries we understand that play is a natural and holistic way for children to learn and discover the world around them. We pride ourselves on our enriching, ever changing environments, which ensure children thrive in exploring at their own pace. All of our key areas are open and available for children to navigate, following their own interests, ideas and stages of development allowing play based learning throughout.
Our small world areas will capture your children’s imaginations, encouraging them to create amazing and wonderful worlds with natural resources. It will help them in all areas of development, acting out their experiences, thoughts and feelings. Our homecorner allows children to develop their special interests, often changing to not just a kitchen or homely environment, but a restaurant, grotto, space ship or firestation to name a few. These opportunities help children role play their real life experiences of the world around them and act out their imaginative fantasies.
They will practice and perfect their practical life skills, learn self help and body awareness. They communicate and build relationships with their friends, learning how to solve problems all while having fun! Our Maths areas are always a huge hit! With beautiful resources to capture children’s love of learning, they’ll learn all about shapes, sizes, weights, heights, colours and patterns. They’ll practice their threading and number recognition, counting, adding and subtracting…all in a days play.
Our creative areas are equipped with a free flow of amazing resources to inspire all our budding young artists. The children can use their imaginations and explore their curiosity to innovate their own masterpieces, allowing them to express themselves and their ideas. Play based learning is a huge part of our day at Leigh’s, helping our children to build their foundations of curiosity, imagination, questioning and enthusiasm to learn.
Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
