Our Key people in our Nursery team are:
If you are not aware of your child's key person, please contact us and we can inform you of who it is!
Your key person will be focussing on your child's needs, building up a bond with yourselves and your child, and completing your child's learning journey.
We run parents evenings 2 times a year. The dates for this academic year are:
W/C 17th October 2022
W/C 13th March 2023
Here you can discuss your child's progress at forest school with your key person, have a look through their learning journey and have a good catch up over a cup of tea!
At The Nature Box, we follow a child led approach, planning in the moment and extending children's learning in the here and now.
Our staff team work hard to jot down fantastic learning moments, take lovely photos, and then combine this together to create a report at the end of each term to share with you all the fantastic things they have been getting up to.
This learning journey is yours to keep, and will go home with you when your child leaves us to go to school.

- A private community Facebook page for families who currently attend Forest School

It is our priority at Forest School to keep you child safe.
Please ensure that when entering and leaving forest school, you pull the gate towards each other, and loop the chain over. Our staff team lock the gates strictly after pick up and drop off times.
Please try to get to forest school at your chosen pick up and drop off time. We have a strict gate locking policy, so staff will lock the gate after a certain time.
Please ring the bell for assistance. Please do not jump over the gate, or send siblings over the gate to retrieve your child. It is important to role model the importance of safety to our children, this is something all of our parents and staff team must take seriously.
We have just loved celebrating our class of 2022 with our magnificent graduation celebration. Congratulations to our wonderful little explorers.
You will be enormously missed! but we know you are going to go far in your next adventure!
