At Ashfield Outdoor Nursery we provide daycare for children aged 2 – 6 years with a dedicated and supportive team in a natural outdoor environment that encourages children to explore, adventure and learn through play.
Our Nursery is located at Ashfield Community Enterprise in Howey. Our main site is set within an acre and a half of beautiful outdoor space with a diverse range of play experiences and resources. We aim to spend the majority of our time outside but have a small, but well equipped and warm wooden cabin/classroom for downtime, naps and use in the most extreme weathers. We also have access to a range of facilities on the Ashfield Community Enterprise site, including a Forest School woodland area, polytunnels, a community kitchen and a Multi-sensory garden.
We have cherry-picked aspects of the Playwork Principles and the Playwork Curriculum, Montessori and Steiner Education, alongside the Forest School Ethos to create an exciting fusion for your child’s care and development. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum to support the physical, emotional, social and intellectual development of each child. We aim to assist each individual to reach their full potential and develop life-long learning skills. Equally important to us, we support a range of holistic experiences promoting mindfulness, celebrating life and enjoying the moment.
