Year of Forest School accreditation:
Background: It is a warm, nurturing environment where children in their preschool year can develop personally, socially and emotionally as they learn and grow in a supportive, child-led environment.
We received funding in 2020 from Ards and North Down Borough Council to support us in training to become an accredited Forest School. Miss Algie has been taking part in the Forest School programme with her Nursery class.
Forest School setting: We have been carrying out our Forest School sessions in two different area's. One is the local Castle Park, which is just across the road from us and had some beautiful woodland and the other is our natural garden attached to the nursery which has willow tunnels, a mud kitchen, vegetable patch, birch circle and a large Outdoor Classroom.
