Interested in joining our outdoor nursery?

Playing outdoors can have a hugely beneficial impact on your child’s emotional and physical wellbeing. 

We strongly believe that our outdoor environment will provide children with the opportunity to grow, learn and develop in to young people and adults who care for, respect and appreciate their world and everything in it. 

If you’d like to enrol your child in our outdoor nursery, get in touch with our nursery manager Erin Kennedy. She’s happy to talk to you about the flexible places we can offer to children aged three to five.
