The Playful Beginnings project was set up in 2007 with funding from Easington & Horden Sure Start, District of Easington Council, and Northern Cultural Skills Partnership.

Everyday Freedoms

under 3s 2

An Early Years Outdoor project funded by Newcastle Neighbourhood Renewal and SureStart Newcastle and Fossway.

During Spring and Summer of 2007, the children from Wharrier St. Playgroup spent one session each week at Ouseburn Farm with their educators and an artist-photographer team. The interests and fascinations that emerged there were supported back at playgroup by the project team and the children’s usual educators, shaping the learning and play that occurred there.
