Wonderful woodland

“The best classroom and richest stockroom is only roofed by the sky” Margaret McMillan

Perfect for children from the age of 2 years, our Woodland Nursery is set in the beautiful grounds of Burntwood Rugby club on the edge of Chasewater Country Park.

With winding footpaths under a canopy of nature, discover a magical, make-believe world where anything is possible, using natural resources to build play based experiences.

Your child’s development

Observe your child’s resourcefulness and confidence to make decisions and watch as they allow themselves creativity of thought without barriers. From problem solving inquisitiveness, to sharing moments of complete stillness just listening to nature, what a perfect platform to nurture children’s natural curiosity and thirst to learn.

Safety in the woodland is crucial and children will be taught how to keep themselves safe and risk- assess themselves, with the support of adults to ensure the site is safe and risks are analysed in different situations to develop their perspective. They will be taught how to use tools safely, rules of the fire circle and how to respect the woodland code.

Learning and fun go hand in hand

This is a unique learning opportunity for your children to join a nursery driven by passionate outdoor teaching experts with skills to support your child’s learning right through to school age. No elements of the early year’s curriculum will be left unturned; it will be creatively delivered to your child within a natural environment.

Children will discover the impacts on nature of the changing seasons, learn how to care for our wildlife and develop their resilience to meet challenges, self-assessing risk, and becoming problem solving critical thinkers.

Foundations for life will be built, embedding physical skills essential to support writing, emotional skills vital for supporting resilience in the world, and developing a rich vocabulary and higher level of confidence with speaking and listening. Focus workshops and creative teaching strategy supports early phonics, reading, writing and mathematics in preparation for your child to start school.
