We provide sufficient space, time and the right equipment for creative play; enabling children to take risks physically, emotionally and intellectually and to persevere when they encounter difficulties. We are passionate about outdoor learning and spend as much time outside as possible providing waterproof trousers and gloves, hats and wellies or sun-cream so we can go out in all types of weather.
The children are encouraged to engage in ‘risky play’ appropriate for their age, skill set and physical development. We take concepts from Forest School’s ethos – the Toddlers and Pre-Schoolers are encouraged to climb trees, look for minibeasts, learn simple wood craft skills, practise den building and enjoy tasty treats cooked over our campfire.
‘Mini David Attenboroughs’
Our staff and children are passionate about the environment believing that if children learn first hand about the world they will do their best to look after it.
