Budding Gardeners at Hart Plain Church Preschool

At Hart Plain Church Preschool in Waterlooville, the children are getting ready for spring with their new weekly gardening sessions. Part of the large garden has been given over to raised beds where the children can grow plants and flowers. They are encouraged to get involved at every stage, from planting to watering, weeding and harvesting. It’s hoped that, through the year, the children will be able to also grow some fruit and vegetables that they can pick and eat.

Also, in the garden, the children can enjoy three other play areas: a construction area, a large grassed physical play area and a quiet reading area. Part of the garden has an all-weather surface for year-round outdoor play and activities include sand and water play, small world and ride-on toys to encourage motor skills.

And the fun doesn’t stop there! Hart Plain Church Preschool also offers weekly music classes where children learn about instruments in the orchestra and famous pieces of classical music, as well as singing songs and nursery rhymes. They also explore rhythm through playing percussion instruments and recycling boxes, cans and cartons to make their own instruments.
