At Nina's we consider the outdoor environment to be equally important as the indoor space.
We believe being outside supports the development of healthy and active lifestyles in offering children opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement, whilst also promoting a sense of well-being. The outdoor space provides the children contact with the natural world and offers them experiences that are unique to outdoors, such as direct contact with the weather and the seasons.
At Ninas we recognise the benefits that keeping pets within a setting has for the children. Having pets provides children with a wealth of learning opportunities, what animals need to live and the importance of taking care of them throughout the year. We certainly have a menagerie of animals for the children to care for across our nurseries. We have 2 chickens, 2 guinea pigs, a hamster and an array of goldfish!
Our chickens, Peri and Teddy live at our Offerton Nursery along with Minnie the hamster and Zazu and Barry the goldfish! Oak and Ivy our guinea pigs live with Bob the goldfish at Cale Green. We have more fish Goldie and Flipper who live at our Macclesfield nursery.
