Morden Park Forest School


Morden Park is our wonderful Forest School. Here the children spend most of the time outside, exploring the incredible 190 acres of nature that is Morden Park, situated right on our doorstep.


We head outside in the rain, snow, sun and wind* and children get to safely learn to use tools like hammers and knives* as well as climb trees and so much more. 

Your little one WILL come home muddy, they WILL make a mess in your car all whilst making unforgettable memories and learning lifelong skills.

Although we are a Forest School, very young children and babies will experience a more regular nursery environment rather than heading into the park. They will be using the same tools and materials to induct them slowly into Forest School sessions.


At this nursery, we encourage exploration through curiosity and free flow.  We let the little ones to play both inside and out, choose toys or everyday objects

*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 (3 months to 5 years) . 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 are delivered under the EYFS framework, Forest Schools and inspected by OFSTED.

Good grub programme & Healthy Early Years London - fresh healthy brain food.

Extra activities provided by us and external providers.
