The Garden

All children need time to stretch those little legs. Our garden gives all the children at Springthorpe the chance to do this regularly. The great outdoors provides children with unique learning opportunities that just can’t be replicated indoors, that’s why we are committed to letting children roam around our garden every day- come rain or shine. Whether children feel the need to burn off some energy by running around or riding a trike, go on a hunt for insects, or explore whatever may take their fancy, there is always an adventure to be had in our garden at Springthorpe.
