At Noah’s Ark we view outings as a way of involving all parents in the life of the nursery and the overall education of their children and visiting different places is a way to extend the children’s learning beyond the classroom and also to have lots of fun whilst doing so! Many parents also find that being involved in school outings is a good way to develop friendships and to foster a sense of community with other Noah’s Ark parents.
We are especially keen to explore places that promote involvement and interaction for the children to foster their enthusiasm and joy in learning. Outings in the past have included the Science Museum, Kew Gardens, the Wetlands Centre, Horniman Museum, Dulwich Picture Gallery, the V&A Museum of Childhood, London Transport Museum, Fulham Palace, Holland Park Ecological Centre and Bocketts Farm. All of these venues have exciting educational programs alongside opportunities for lots of enjoyment and fun.
We also offer local community outings e.g. regular visits to the library, weekly access to Wandsworth Common and exploring other aspects of the local area.
