The Woodland Nursery
South East London’s first Forest School Nursery!
Let your child experience learning in a physically, mentally and emotionally healthy way through our Forest School Nursery. All children will learn to develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences set in a natural woodland environment.
Why choose The Woodland Nursery?
The Woodland Nursery is an outdoor nursery for 2½ to 5 year olds based on the Forest School approach. We believe the closer to nature children are, the happier they will be and therefore the more likely they are to learn. Free to explore nature’s riches, a child’s senses are heightened which enhances their creative and imaginative play. The nursery will be based in local woodland in South East London and will offer outdoor play 5 days a week, 39 weeks per year.
What are our fees and session times?
We charge a flat fee of £58 per day from 9am-3:30pm.
Half day sessions are £29 from 9am-12noon and 12:30-3:30pm.
*All sessions include drinks and snacks*
Children are welcome to attend part time although we do ask for a minimum of two sessions per week to ensure continuity for the children. We like to be flexible in our approach however and aim to accommodate parents requests as often as possible. We are also happy to try and fit the sessions around any other nursery commitments your child may already have.
We are open term time only and we follow Greenwich term times. Please note that we are closed during the school holidays.
