Nature Nursery

Our Nature Nursery runs in 10 acres of community woodland at Whistlewood Common between Melbourne and Ticknall in South Derbyshire.

Sessions are aimed at children aged from 2 and a half upwards and run on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in Derbyshire term times** . Based on the Forest School approach we use the beautiful outdoor environment along with real life experiences to provide a range of varied opportunities to support children's development. We believe that the entire Early Years curriculum can be covered in a way that is meaningful to children and uses their innate curiosity to put them at the centre of their own learning. This is a fantastic opportunity for children to supplement the Early years education that they receive in a traditional nursery with something that is different and exciting.
