New garden paves way for outdoor adventure
CHILDREN can now take the odd risk in a safe environment thanks to a new garden which has been created at a Weston nursery.
Honeytree Day Nursery and Preschool in Grange Road officially opened its new garden, which used to be part of Weston General Hospital’s car park, this week.
Cutting the ribbon was two-year-old Lucy Hofgartner and Niamh McCloskey, aged three, who won the chance to open the garden in a competition.
Bernadette Rosewell, manager of the nursery and pre-school, said: “It is all about the children taking risks in a safe environment.
“This means within the garden we have logs and bricks and things teaching them how to problem solve and what they can and can’t do.

“It’s absolutely amazing – it has changed the nursery completely and how the children learn.
“Based on research, children learn best in outdoor environments and when they are problem solving and investigating, which become so much better when outside.”
