The Northern College’s Children’s Centre has staved of fierce competition for two staff places on a ‘Building Early Foundations Together’ project. There are only four projects that settings can apply for and as they’re only offered once per year with limited places it was a pleasant surprise to Joanne Bell, the Children’s Centre Manager, that her application for first choice of project was granted.
Joanne chose to apply for the ‘Moving and Thinking Outdoors’ project as she knows that some children have to be on the move in order to think and where better than in a new and improved outdoor learning environment in a centre set in the wonderful grounds of Wentworth Castle.
Joanne will be joined by her colleague Jess on the project which runs over two dates in November 2018 and June 2019.
Here are some ‘before’ photographs of the current outdoor space at the Children’s Centre and we’ll post the ‘after’ photographs at the end of the project for comparison!
