OPAL- Outdoor Play and Learning



At Delves Infants and Nursery School we believe that all children have the right to good, quality play whatever the weather. We are committed to ensure many quality play opportunities are available.


We believe that play is essential for physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual development of every child. Most of our best childhood memories are from playing outside , climbing trees and exploring the world around us.


OPAL gives the children at Delves the opportunity to make everlasting memories. OPAL is all about using natural and man-made resources to allow children to be inspired and creative at playtimes. Through adopting this approach our children are happier, healthier and more resilient.
