We are delighted to announce that in April 2020 we will be launching a completely outdoor nursery at Pippins. Children will be immersed in nature, helping them to become resilient, healthy and independent.
Forest School activities will be child-lead and play-based, following an EYFS curriculum. Children will experience freedom and build confidence.
Base camp is in the process of being created. We have designed a stunning 24 foot yurt with log burner which will be situated in the beautiful Essex countryside in our own Long Meadow. We are privileged to be able to use woodland behind this for our Forest School.
We have been planning this for over a year and we have left no stone unturned. Hot food and toilets have been a top priority as is the training of our amazing team who will lead the children.
We believe this is a unique opportunity for children to spend all day among nature. It has been our vision for children to be able to have this experience. The nursery will be open between 8am and 6pm and in all weathers for 47 weeks of the year.
