OUR AMAZING FOREST SCHOOL
Herne Bays only nursery with a full forest school experience.
Avenue Nursery's Forest School is led by 3 fully qualified forest school leaders. They are passionate and dedicated about facilitating children's emotional well-being, confidence and self-esteem, whilst developing a love of nature and the outdoors.
Learning with nature
At our new Forest School we are able to offer our children the adventure of a whole new and exciting learning environment.
A Forest School where children can flourish and learn in an inspiring outdoor setting.
Children will spend quality time together exploring and learning about nature, working together & risk taking in a safe yet challenging environment.
Forest School is a great way for children to build confidence, self-esteem and peer interaction.
"Forest School has already proven to truly impact our children's wellbeing and self confidence. Children are showing more confidence verbally and physically.
Children that are reluctant speakers in the setting find their voice and face challenge and risk with far greater confidence. Their social and emotional wellbeing is just amazing. A truly child led experience".
Statement by Nikki Finnis Parker - Avenue Nursery Director/Manager
