A Little Glimpse into Our Astley Kindergarten

You’ll love Astley Nature Kindergarten:


Outdoors and Nature

Our extensive outdoor area is comprised of several very exciting spaces that promote children’s natural desire to explore, investigate and take risks under the supervision of skillful practitioners. Inspirational features that add to the interest of the garden include; a tree house, a gravel pit, an allotment, a bug hotel, a pond, a fire pit, an outdoor classroom and a bird watching hut. We even encourage our children to help grow their own veggies in our vegetable patch whenever possible! The garden provides opportunities for children of all ages and abilities to physically challenge themselves. A small hill, steps, split level areas and stepping stones allow children to test their ability to climb, balance and jump at a level that they feel safe. We are now a forest school, so much of the Pre-School children’s play and learning takes place in our outdoor area. We provide our pre-school children with a secure and safe area to explore to their heart’s content. By providing access to such a wonderful nature area, we feel that we are offering our children the opportunity to engage with the rich natural diversity of the natural outdoor environment whilst helping to build confidence, sensitivity, resilience and curiosity.

We are committed to being an environmentally friendly nursery, making changes wherever we can in order to make the world a cleaner place! We are a registered ECO-Nursery and are committed to teach our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives.
