Established for almost twenty years and set in the tranquil and leafy village of Upper Dean, our small, friendly setting provides a wonderful environment for children to learn through play. Surrounded by fields and woodland, we are an official Forest School setting with a focus on outside learning. We run unique woodland sessions and are privileged to have our very own allotment where children enjoy growing their own fruit and vegetables. Regular activities include outdoor play, arts and crafts using foraged natural material, den building and cooking using our own produce.
A feeder into our village school, Eileen Wade Lower School, we are open to children aged 2-5. Our sessions are fully integrated, so younger children benefit from playing with and learning from older peers in a small, homely environment. Highly trained staff encourage imaginary play with hand made and natural toys, whilst taking time to understand each child’s individual ability and personality. We use the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework to plan sessions, whilst providing a range of play activities echoing the staff’s collective Forest School and Steiner training.
We believe our unique ethos offers our children an inspirational learning process helping them to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning in a natural environment with plants and trees.
