Harriet House is situated within a 5 acre walled garden situated on the Yattendon Estate. The grounds provide a wonderful environment for the children to play and take part in different sporting activities.
The children spend time outdoors every day, whatever the weather! We have two large playing fields, a giant teepee, an outdoor classroom and play areas designed to help the children develop their gross motor skills.
Throughout the year we grow fruit, vegetables and herbs for the kitchen. We continue to invest in our outdoor space with a sensory garden in development. We are lucky to be able to access local woodlands for our weekly Forest School sessions.
Harriet House is working towards the Eco-Schools Green Flag Accreditation.
Our Eco-Committee are committed to educating our families and children of the environmental challenges that lie ahead, and what we can do to prevent these catastrophic effects. We have decided to do our best to actively reduce the future climate crises our children will unfairly face. Furthermore, by involving our families and their children in our efforts now, we will simultaneously be providing them with the knowledge and skills they will need to tackle these issues as they grow to become leaders, educators and decision-makers themselves.
Over the next few months, we will be hosting gardening days and other eco-events that will be planned by our eco-committee, in order to develop the Harriet House Children’s Garden.
We aim to make a difference for our children in more ways than one, and be a part of something really special.
