To mark the referendum on EU membership this week, we’ve planned an exciting selection of meals featuring some of the best food from across Europe!
We are really excited to welcome two little Pygmy Goats to Secret Garden.
Dickon and Colin arrived at the weekend and are already proving very popular with our “little farmers”!
We are pleased to be using Tapestry Online Learning Journals at Secret Garden. Tapestry is a fantastic application for keeping parents updated on what their child is doing during the day whilst also providing a record of the child’s learning and development.
Parents will be provided with their own secure log in and will receive email notifications each time a new photo, observation or video of their child is uploaded. We encourage parents to share and discuss these observations with their child – a brilliant opportunity to nurture home to nursery links.
There is the facility to add a comment in reply or give it a “Like” and if you have an iPhone you can download the Tapestry app which makes receiving and reading your child’s observations even easier.
In support of two of our key aims: fostering a love of books and forging close links with home, we are pleased to open the Secret Garden Library.
Children are welcome to borrow a book from the Library to take home. The selection of books will be frequently updated to reflect the children’s interests and will feature a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts.
We look forward to hearing about the books you read at home and if you would like to share a photo, drawing or comment about the book we will pin it on the Library display for everyone to see.
Children are given the opportunity to create, explore and problem solve on a larger scale than can be accommodated indoors. This sense of space helps children to gain a greater perspective of the world and their place in it.
At Secret Garden we aim to provide an outdoor provision that excites and challenges children and is aligned to their interests and stages of development.
Secret Garden is a new ‘nursery at home’ setting in Slinfold, near Horsham in West Sussex.
The name ‘Secret Garden’ was inspired by a hidden orchard discovered within the grounds, echoing the discovery of the walled garden by Mary in the children’s classic by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
