We are delighted to announce that we offer a completely outdoor 'forest school' nursery at Pippins. Children are immersed in nature, helping them to become resilient, healthy and independent.
Forest School activities are child-lead and play-based, following an EYFS curriculum, where children experience freedom and build confidence.
Our base camp is a stunning, specially designed 24 foot yurt with log burner, situated in the beautiful Essex countryside in our own Long Meadow. We are also privileged to be able to use woodland behind this.
Forest School was in planning for over a year, leaving no stone unturned. Hot food and toilets were a top priority as was the training of our now amazing team who lead the children.
We believe this is a unique opportunity for children to spend all day surrounded by nature. It has long been our vision for children to be able to have this experience. The nursery is open between 8am and 6pm and in all weathers for 47 weeks of the year.
If you would like more information about the Forest School, please call Lynne on 01787 228 567.
