KINGSWOOD Day Nursery - Alderholt

Forest School

You will not find anything quite like our sites........
Forest School is magical and inspirational offering your child the opportunity to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands on learning experiences in our woodland environment. This approach is one that Ofsted seen as "outstanding" when they visited. 

Outdoor play is the heart of play, however your child will spend time indoors as well, where they engage with their friends and investigate what's on offer. 

Forest School is a child-led educational process that promotes, observes and explicitly supports the social, emotional and physical development of children in a Woodland surrounding. From 0-8 years your child will access forest school or nature nurture sessions at KingsWood. There is no other site like ours! As Albert Einsten said "Play is the highest form of research"
KingsWood is fortunate enough to have its own Forest School sites in our Woodland  where children venture daily.  On site there is so many inspirational resources and activities for your child to explore, such as fairy homes, rope swings, an army trench, clay kitchens, a dragons nest and many, many shelters!

As a child I am sure you remember climbing trees, splashing in puddles or building a rope swing. At KingsWood we create these ever lasting memories for your children. Mainstream education comes round far too quickly. At KingsWood we love to play, smile and be with our friends. 

We recommend you come and see this outstanding learning environment. Your child will not want to leave-actually you will probably not want to even leave!

Throughout the year you will be invited to all sorts of stay and play sessions with your child, indoors and out.


Are you looking for happy, memorable childcare for your child?

Would they enjoy making mud monsters, pond dipping, bush craft, mud pies, daisy chain making and bug hunts? 

Would your baby enjoy fresh air pram walks, music lines, sensory play, listening to the rain on the Mongolian yurt roof? If so give us a call. 

Forest School leaders at KingsWood have undergone extensive formal accredited training. We have oodles of experience and knowledge, as Forest School at KingsWood has been on offer for over 9 years. 

Some settings use the words forest school as an advertising gimmick, at KingsWood we are passionate about the outdoors and forest school with it being at the heart of our nursery.
