Our Spaces

Our setting has three pre-school spaces, along with our new initiative ‘Return to Forest School’ for our school-bound alumni. In this section you can learn a bit more about the environment we have carefully created to support your children’s growth and development.

In line with our child-centred ethos, we do not base your child’s transition between these spaces solely on their age. We consider their peer group and their readiness for the new challenges such transitions bring. If you have any questions around your child’s transition, please contact us.
