Here at Wild Adventurers Forest Nursery we pride ourselves on being child focused in our approach to education.
Our children control their own balanced education program. Half the time is spent in the forest, developing real life skills and the characteristics of effective learning, and the other half is inside the nursery setting where we prepare the children for more formal education.
In the forest we offer play based, child led learning, where our children become absorbed and engaged in their own activities as well as structured, planned forest school activities. Plus there is always time for free play where the children create their own games and experiences.
In the nursery setting we structure the timetable and activities so that we’re covering more of the EYFS and planning and assessing to cater for children’s individual needs and interests.
CAPTURING THE MOMENTS THAT MATTER MOST
“Joshua started at nursery about a year ago. I had seen on the Facebook page what wonderful fun the children had in the park and that the nursery clearly stood out from the rest in terms of their approach to outdoor learning. As a teacher and mum of three boys-I appreciate on a professional but also personal level how much children benefit from different learning environments. Josh has flourished at this setting, emotionally and academically. He is encouraged to try new things in a loving and safe environment. Independence is fostered and I can see how loved and cared for Josh feels by the way he walks in and gives cuddles to the staff.”

“Brilliant nursery, my child loves coming and especially likes the Forest School that is offered here. Very structured nursery and daily routines. Love how the children are treated as their own. Such a loving, caring and friendly environment, will be sad when my child leaves in September.”

“We could not recommend Astley Village Nursery highly enough. My child absolutely loves the staff, the nursery and all the activities. In particular, she has enjoyed Forest School and is always full of stories and new learning.”

“Staff are calm, sensitive and consistent in their approach to behaviour management. Their timely and supportive interventions help children to identify ways to resolve their own conflicts and to find a compromise during play.”
