Welcome to Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten


As Early Years Specialists we are passionate about offering children rich, natural environments where they can have fun, flourish and succeed. Our Nature Nurtures approach is inspired by German and Scandinavian kindergartens, and promotes the importance of outdoor experiences for young children. Through nature we are able to engage their senses, inspire curiosity, awe and wonder, and fuel creativity and imagination - essential ingredients for exploration, learning and development.

Based at Top Barn Farm, Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten is the first of its kind in Worcestershire. Offering pre-school, nursery and kindergarten places for children aged 2 to 5 years old.

You can follow us here as we create the most unique early years setting in Worcestershire.

Guiding Principles


  • Respect for the individual: Our aim is to ensure that all children feel secure, valued and understood.
  • An emergent curriculum: Whether indoors or out, activities at kindergarten are based on an emergent curriculum, building on what children are interested in,and what they already know.
  • Importance of play: We believe that play enables children to be completely absorbed in what they are doing, nurturing every aspect of development and laying foundations for the physical, cognitive, social and emotional wellbeing needed for a happy, healthy and successful individual.
  • Community: We believe in building community; we strive to create deep and meaningful connections with families.
  • We are guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), a framework which recognises that every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential.
  • For us, early childhood is the time not for competitiveness but for self discovery and developing curiosity, confidence and a love of learning.

Being immersed in the natural world offers time, space, and endless possibilities for exploration, play and firsthand experience. It enables a love of learning to flourish.

 

Nature presents children with something so much greater than they are; it offers a sense of wonder - an environment where they can easily contemplate infinity and eternity..
