Morden Park Forest School
'Mud, sweat and tears of joy'
Morden Park is one of our wonderful forest schools. At this school we encourage exploration through curiosity and free-flow. By allowing the little ones to play both inside and out, choose toys or everyday objects or even play with our chickens!
What is a forest school?
We leave your little ones outside all day long, rain, snow, sun, wind.* They will play** with knives and climb trees. They WILL come home muddy, they will make a mess in your car - your house will be a Persil advert!
* We follow guidance from the Met Office, there may be times of the year in extreme conditions and lightning where we will be back at base.
**We use knives and other implements as tools, this is risk assessed and highly supervised.
We offer full and half day childcare for babies to pre-school ages. We will spend most of the day outside and our babies will get to explore the outside world but also have the comfort of a regular nursery.
All delivered under the EYFS framework, forest schools and inspected by OFSTED.
