SCOTTISH architecture and planning practice Halliday Fraser Munro has developed outdoor nurseries that are the first of their kind in the country as part of its desire to help create progressive early learning provisions to meet new demand.
Delivering on the increasingly popular concept of learning through open play, Halliday Fraser Munro has completed a number of innovative new-build nurseries and reconfigurations of existing facilities.
The firm is working with Aberdeen City Council and has developed an outdoor nursery in both Duthie Park and Hazlehead Park.
David Halliday, managing director, said: “Features such as riverbeds are more interesting places to learn about things like the movement of water than a sink or bowl.
“The focus is very much on natural play and features such as slopes, logs and mud pits have proven more involving than artificial plastic and man-made play structures.”
