Outdoor Space

A beautiful open air space in the heart of Middlesbrough

People are often surprised to find such a large, fantastic outdoor area in our nursery that is situated in the heart of Middlesbrough town.

Lots of time, thought and planning has been invested in our outdoor area and facilities making them what they are today. We have recently had an extension to our pre-school area and we now have a brand-new bike park for the children to enjoy.

At Great Expectations we believe that a high-quality outdoor environment offers infinite possibilities for learning. All seven areas of learning described in The Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance (personal social and emotional/communication and language/physical development/literacy/mathematics/understanding of the world/expressive arts and design) can be practiced outdoors together with essential life skills known as The Characteristics of Effective Learning (playing and exploring/active learning creating and thinking critically)
