About Me

** CURRENTLY FULL *** I have a waiting list please email me for more information

We based near the centre of town and have parking available for drop off. We are a high-quality home from home Early Years Setting including Forest School. We are committed to providing the best quality care and education for children in the Early Years. Children attending will be able to experience hands on learning in an outdoor space, playing alongside nature, using natural resources that create different individual challenges. We have a purpose-built log cabin for childcare and a huge garden with lots of resources. I have a brand new 7-seater car to safely go to the local woods, national trust and farm trips etc. Children are in a 1 adult to 3 children ratio at all times so far higher than a nursery.

Forest School:

Each week we will venture out to the woods where children will be able to connect with nature, overcome challenges, develop their confidence, learn to problem solve, play freely, develop concentration, develop social skills, physical skills and imagination.

Holidays:

Little Outdoor Explorers is term time only.

Food:

Food will be provided and it will be healthy and organic (where possible) all meat and eggs will be from a local butchers or farm shop. Children will have free access to food so that they are never hungry, and we will teach them to eat healthily.
We provide:
- Breakfast
- Morning Snack
- Lunch
- Afternoon Snack
Parents will need provide all nappies and wipes etc. a full list of things will be provided so that children have the things they are comfortable with.
