A unique Nursery in the area providing excellence in childcare as well as creative learning experiences set in a beautiful park setting. We’re passionate about delivering the highest quality of education. We aim to provide an exclusive learning experience in unique surroundings unlike anywhere else available locally.
Our Nursery’s outdoor environment is a rich, dynamic and natural space for learning which provides an environment that offers children the opportunity to explore, use their senses, and be physically active and exuberant.
Such outdoor play is an essential learning resource that has been recognised by much research including the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS),
The EYFS states: ‘Outdoor learning is enhanced by an environment that is richly resourced…’
Weather permitting each child will benefit from one hour per week of forest activities.
