Learning is on track to become a whole lot more fun for youngsters at a pre-school in Clifton with the unveiling of new playground surfacing.
The new artificial grass surface was laid during the Easter holidays at The Woodlands Pre-School in Church Street.
Featuring a road layout, the area will be ideal for role play and for children to use the pre-school’s ride-on and push-along toys.
Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey, which is building new homes just a short walk from the pre-school, at The Paddocks in New Road, donated £750 to the project’s overall £8,000 cost.
Treasurer of the pre-school’s management committee, Sally Lawrence, said: “The area previously contained a ramp which we had removed and although we put temporary flooring down it wasn’t really very useable for the children especially when it was wet and muddy.
“We have a fantastic fundraising team who’ve helped make the resurfacing project possible by organising fundraising events and reaching out to local businesses like Taylor Wimpey.
“We were delighted to have recently retained our ‘Outstanding’ rating from Ofsted and outdoor provision is an important part of providing an outstanding learning environment for the children. We’re looking forward to having the newly resurfaced area for the children to use during the summer.”
Gareth Jacob, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey South Midlands, said: “As a local housebuilder we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our homes, so we were happy to offer this donation to The Woodlands Pre-School and help to further improve the education of pupils.”
The Paddocks has a four-bedroom home available from £415,000.
