Extracurricular Activities

At The Buchan Nursery we compliment our curriculum with a wide range of extracurricular activities. We believe these enhance the children’s development and provide valuable transferable skills. Our parents also find these useful as they are held during nursery hours so you can tailor your nursery sessions to include these activities. We take the hassle out of finding fun, developmentally and age appropriate activities for your child. You can also rest assured that all our extracurricular activities are provided by suitably qualified professionals who are fully compliant with our safeguarding policies.

We offer the following activities within the nursery day:

As well as our regular extracurricular activities we make use of the abundance of wonderful activities available to us on our beautiful Island. We take regular trips to our local parks, library, beach and town centre. Castletown has plenty to offer for little learners and we take every opportunity to benefit from this.

We take the children out into the countryside and to the shoreline to explore nature, have fun and learn whilst actively enjoying the fresh air.

Travelling in our minibus the children will be taken to a variety of locations across the Island chosen for their safety, the opportunities available, the children’s interests, the proximity and their suitability for the weather. It is the intention to operate in all weathers (subject to cancellation in extreme conditions, such as snow) throughout the year.

Some of the activities the children will enjoy include:

If you’d like to join us on an excursion we’d love to have you come along. Please speak to your child’s teacher or the Head of Nursery and we can arrange this.
