The Garden

Our garden has been designed with imagination, inventiveness and exploration at its core. With bespoke beach huts, mud kitchen and a sandy beach - our nautical references pay tribute to Christchurch and its surrounding areas. Hop on board the Twynham Express and let us take you on a seaside adventure!

Growing Together

At Twynham House, we recognise the value that outdoor learning has for the holistic health and well-being of both our children and staff. Spaces have been created to inspire activities such as balancing, riding and construction. There are also relaxing areas for quiet contemplation or a chat with friends.

From a young age, we teach our children to appreciate and nurture their environment, spending time looking after plants, homegrown vegetables and the little creatures we find crawling around them! Across the Nursery, our children enjoy outdoor learning and play throughout the day.

Encouraging Adventure

Crafted by a local beach hut maker, our Beach Huts are a very special addition to our garden. As an outdoor classroom, they serve the purpose of allowing our children to imagine, explore and create.

Our mud kitchen, seaside train and large modular blocks enable role play and support free play across the curriculum, where key skills of confidence and cooperation can be developed. Our children have the space to run, jump, skip and hop their way around the Garden. Obstacle courses, zooming with friends on the three-wheeler bike and ball games support in building team work and collaboration.

Our outdoor spaces allow our children to grow their understanding of the natural world and how best to care for and protect the environment. From little to big hands, skills such as planting, digging and working on our busy boards help our children to develop important motor skills. With a trained Forest School practitioner on our staff, they are encouraged to touch, feel, smell, create and develop a respect for the nature around them.
