The learning farm is an amazing place for 2-5 year olds because of the space, something that many young children do not experience at pre-school or at home.  Under guidance they can pick flowers, tree leaves, crop plants, grasses and berries which enriches the experience further.  Pond dipping is a firm favourite with most of the pre-schools that have visited and there is great excitement when a child catches something that zooms around their bucket at speed like a water boatman or dragon fly nymph. 

We fully support the Early Years Foundation Scheme guidance at  Learning Farm, working in the four key areas:

1. A unique child
2. Positive relationships
3. Enabling environments
4. Learning and development

In particular we provide a new envrionment for learning, a outdoor environment, physical development, learning through experience and making connections.
