We are delighted that we have been chosen as one of the co-ops local community causes for the next 6 months. Co‑op gives 1% of what you spend on its products to community projects selected by Co‑op stores near your home.
You can choose which cause your own 1% goes to. If you don’t, it’s shared out between the causes of your nearest Co‑op. So please choose Belton pre-school by logging into co-op online.
About the Project:
At Belton Pre-school we are huge advocates of outdoor learning. The benefits for children being outside are well documented to develop play, learning, physicality, confidence, self-regulation and build self-esteem. We are extremely fortunate to have sole use of our beautiful gardens for the children to run and explore, but we wanted to find a way to extend this learning further. This term we have introduced ‘Forest School’ outdoor play sessions to our timetable. This has been extremely popular and in high demand for children to attend. These sessions are run by an external company and supported by our own staff. Due to the nature of the sessions, they are limited to 12 children per 5-week course of sessions. We would, therefore, like to be able to subsidise an extra session in the future.
