Sulivan has a very special outdoor area for all children to enjoy. It is our little gem; an oasis of calm in the middle of a busy city and full of opportunity to learn. All of our children learn from and about the natural world by observing living things, planting, bird watching, playing, den building and caring for the garden. We have a specialist gardener who guides them through the processes of the natural world and teaches them to be Natural Caretakers of our environment. Our Garden School classes combine curriculum subjects with developing an understanding and respect for the wider world.
We know the importance for children to be outdoors; to enrich their learning and support their well-being. We are committed to learning outdoors and caring for our “little piece of earth” because we want our children to be:
- Responsible- environmentally responsible citizens and caretakers
- Healthy- physical and emotional well-being and mental health
- Cooperative and compassionate- work together to solve problems, achieve aims and tasks and understand others and their feelings
