Babies love to explore at Crawford

Our babies at Crawford Childcare are very curious and inquisitive especially when they are playing outside. The baby room team are always looking for ways to enhance the children’s experiences and further their learning. We decided that little adventures over to our natural play area would be a great way to do this.
These excursions offer the babies wonderful experiences. The different parts of the natural play area allow the babies to take in and explore nature first hand! They experience a whole host of new textures including sand, bark mulch and the different plants in the garden. It also gives them new challenges allows them to take risks in a safe environment which leads to a building of confidence.
So far the babies have really enjoyed going over to the natural play space in small groups and taking it all in. They are big fans of the campsite and have loved exploring around it! We also have a lot of very talented musicians in the baby room and so the music wall has also been a big hit!
Outdoor play has always been a big part of life at Crawford Childcare, the babies are outside as much as possible and the benefits of this are countless. Children gain so much from outdoor play it helps refine gross and fine motor skills, it helps build a strong immune system and encourages a positive attitude towards exercise and physical activity which is crucial at every age. We are lucky to have such a vast and varied outdoor area at Crawford Childcare and it is really wonderful to see the babies embracing every inch of it!
