Forest Schools Kindergartens

Sessions and Prices

At our Nature Nurseries, we provide children with a full forest schools program that we require both children and parents to invest in so that children can reap the benefits. For the full benefit of a Forest Schools experience, children will attend at least 2 days per week to ensure that they can be fully engaged with the ethos over time. This also allows children to settle easier and be more comfortable and tuned in to the Forest Schools Program.

Our sessions run from 8am – 6pm, we do not offer half day sessions as the Forest Schools Program requires the children to spend the day in the woods.

Sample Menu

We do accept the 15 hours government funding and the 15 hours extended funded however this is offered on a stretched basis over 51 weeks instead of term time only which equates to 10 hours government funded and 10 hours Extended funding. There is a supplementary charge which is to pay for the Forest Schools Sessions and the higher ratio of staff required to carry out the forest schools program. The cost of this is £20 per day.

The nursery may from time to time increase any fees or charges on giving not less than 4 weeks written notice of such increase, for those paying the full cost of childcare. We will give a minimum a 1 months notice in advance of any term start date if fees will differ in relation to funded children.

We do offer 10 places that are fully funded for families in receipt of income support. Please speak to the nursery manager to discuss this further.
