Welcome to SandyHands!

At SandyHands we aim to get children outdoors, throughout the year. We share in guided activity, and allow children to develop and explore their own creativity. We encourage children to talk about things they see as we explore and learn through fun.
We aim to help children see the out-door environment as a place to enjoy and wonder at and to appreciate it's a place that we all need to look after. 
We hope we can instil a passion for the natural world and a desire to look after our environments.
Tuesday and Thursday, outdoor, beach fun, games, crafts, stories and friends!
