At Orchard, we have a safe, enclosed walled garden. A third of the garden is covered allowing children to play outside in all winds and weathers. We have a paved area for bikes, scooters and cars, and both a grass and astro turf area.

We aim to use the garden daily, and during the summer months garden umbrellas are used, so all activities can be lifted from inside to make the most of the weather.

Children have sun lotion applied before using the garden, and throughout the day, along with the use of sun hats.
