If your young child enjoys adventure and loves getting hands on with nature and animals, our outdoor pre-school is the perfect learning environment. We are an Ofsted registered pre-school with a Forest School Ethos that follows the Early Years Foundation Stage and its outcomes. We give children the chance to explore the outdoors, learn about nature, bushcraft and a variety of animals including invertebrates, reptiles and mammals!
We have been running after-school and holiday clubs for over 7 years now, encouraging and engaging children to be active outdoors whilst learning about animals, wildlife and nature. Our Mini-Explorers Preschool provides parents with yet another unique offering for their younger children. We are Ofsted registered, have fully trained staff specialised in outdoor education and operate in a safe and secure environment. We have full public liability, animal handling license and are backed by a team of professionals from our parent company Animal Days Out C.I.C.
Our Preschool is for children from the ages of 2 to 5 years. We are open 38 weeks a year with a variety of sessions available. We also run holiday clubs for early years at the preschool or a nearby Ofsted registered venue. We have our own animals and the support of our own Forest School Leaders and Bushcraft practitioners to ensure risks are assessed and the equipment meets safety and quality standards. Our nursery programme manager is a fully qualified Level 3 Forest School leader and trained in handling the ADO animals.
Thank you for gifting our son with a wonderful learning experience.”
