Woodlands Day Nursery and Forest School

Our Woodlands Day Nursery and Forest School puts sustainability and the natural world at the heart of children’s learning.

Based on our Stoke-on-Trent campus, the bespoke £4.4 million award-winning building is timber-framed and also clad with wood. It’s part of our aim to achieve carbon net zero status.

As well as incorporating the latest digital technologies, our inspirational and flexible indoor and outdoor learning spaces offer children the chance to be hands-on with nature.

Through our carefully considered curriculum and teaching, we help them to explore their own interests and curiosities, encouraging and guiding holistic development, crucial life skills and independent learning.
