Out Experiences

At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we believe in the value of real-world experiences and the importance of exploring the local area. We strive to provide children with a range of opportunities to engage with the community, discover new places, and broaden their horizons.

Our nursery organises regular outings to various local destinations, such as the park, library, and shops on Hessle Road. These excursions offer valuable learning experiences and allow children to connect with their surroundings.

In addition to familiar outings, we also plan activities and visits that offer unique experiences that children may not have the opportunity to do at home. These experiences broaden their understanding of the world, ignite their curiosity, and promote new learning opportunities. Whether it’s a visit to a local museum, a trip to a farm, or engaging with different cultural activities, we strive to expose children to diverse experiences that enrich their development and expand their perspectives.

During these outings, the safety and well-being of the children are our top priorities. We ensure adequate supervision, maintain appropriate child-to-staff ratios, and adhere to necessary safety protocols to create a secure environment for exploration and discovery.

At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we are committed to offering a balanced and enriching curriculum that includes both familiar and unique experiences. By exploring the local area, we foster a sense of connection, provide opportunities for learning and growth, and create lasting memories for the children in our care.
