Forest School Nursery

Encouraging our little one's to go get their hands dirty!

These sessions support our nursery aged children to have play raising confidence and self-esteem, based experiences that support them on their journey, supporting communication, building relationships with other children, and helping them to understand and manage their own emotions.

Turn-taking and listening skills will be nurtured using games, playing together, and through reflections at the end of each session.

The programme will be unique to each group, with a flexible approach that is facilitated to support the needs and interests of the children.

Patterns of play will be identified early in the programme and experiences offered to support and develop children’s learning through their preferred learning styles.

There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.

Our Forest activity sessions run in all weathers (the only weather that may put a stop to sessions are lightening and extremely high wind).

To have a positive experience, children need to be dressed appropriately, so old, inexpensive clothes are most suitable.


These guidelines should help:

  • Waterproof Jacket & Trousers
  • All-in-one waterproofs are very useful, especially for younger children.
  • Layers – more in winter (2 isn’t enough!)
  • Long trousers (to avoid stinging nettles and scratching hazards)
  • Wellies/other waterproof boots/strong shoes/trainers suitable for all seasons.
  • Woolly hat, gloves & scarf
  • Sun hat (in summer/sunny weather)

We have a duty of care for your child and we make every attempt to ensure that they are dressed appropriately (using spare resources where possible). However, we will not be able to take children if they are inadequately dressed.
