Sand Pit

Multi-Sensory fun whatever the weather

Our large, heated, covered walk-in sandpit has an abundance of toys to stimulate the children in the sand play area, such as toy construction, digging and pouring equipment, as well as a pulley system. The children explore using wet and dry sand and can choose to wear boots or feel the sand on their feet. They love to dig holes, make cakes, drive trucks and look for treasure - the learning opportunities are endless.


The sandpit has direct access to our log cabin where Montessori nature is the main aim, together with learning to care for the environment and understanding the world. All activities here are nature or science based. The light table offers a wide variety of learning opportunities and there are plenty of resources to support the children in learning about the world we live in.
