Forest School

We have been practicing as a Forest School since 2012, and have three fully qualified Forest School practioners, each of whom is more enthusiastic and passionate about delivering this fantastic outdoor learning programme than the next.  Every child will take part in Forest School while they are with us, and we know that it will be just about their very favourite thing that we do!

Our younger children use natural materials, like leaves, twigs, flowers and mud, to collect, sort, create and learn about the natural world around them in a fun, physical and creative way. 

Our older children use tools to take part in 'risky' activities such as hammering, sawing, drilling and whittling, as well as lighting real fires on which to cook food and make themselves drinks.  Don't worry, these activities are fully supervised and controlled by our teachers, so are very safe.

 

'Lets Talk Together' Accredited
'Let's Talk Together'

In 2016 we became one the first nurseries to be accredited in this Hounslow based scheme.  It focuses on providing the children with a language rich environment, staff that know how to extend and build childrens language skills at their own level of development, and get the most out of every single interaction with the children in their care. 

Children 'Bump Into Books' throughout our school, and we have an extensive 'Early Literacy Lending Library' which all children take full advantage of. 

You can rest assured that your child will have high quality talk time with their skillful, knowledgeable and experianced teachers throughout their day with us.

Healthy Early Years Accreditation

in 2014, we were within the first cohort to achieve this prestigious award from The London Borough of Hounslow.  The award was given for our consistently high standards across four key areas; 

  • The food which children eat at school (see 'Kitchen Garden Project' below for more information),
  • their well-being,
  • the physical activity which children engage in on a daily basis,
  • and their personal, social and emotional development.

Charlotte de Lacey, our manager, has also been an assessor for other Early Years settings wishing to complete their accreditation.
