Outdoors at Furness Vale Nursery

Our outdoor area consists of a playground with part tarmac and part soft play;  an adventure playground on grass with a wooden gazebo and giant sandpit and other fun activities; and a large paddock with a small orchard and a willow tunnel and den.

All our children under 2 access our outdoor area closely supervised twice a day.
The older children access free flow play to outdoors which includes indoor and outdoor areas. This helps encourages their independence and free choice.

Our 2 to 5 year olds enjoy forest nursery here and have free access to all the areas where they grow into independent learners.  To find out more about forest nursery see our forest school section.


We also enjoy going on walks within our community such as down by the canal to feed the ducks, and to our other nursery
