Nature is integrated into every one of our Purple Jay Nurseries.
Whether that is through continued investment into our gardens and prioritisation of outdoor play, working harder to ensure more of the children’s activities take nature into account, or working with trusted and vetted external parties to deliver enriching nature based experiences for the children.
We seek to give children an awareness, understanding and appreciation of the natural world and the impact their actions can have on it, for better or worse.
Our experience shows, and mounting research supports, that making nature a bigger part of children’s lives has numerous physical and mental health benefits for them.
