The freedom to spend a day in the woods brings wonderful possibilities for learning and development through play. Now, that sounds like fun!

A new Little Stars Nursery is in development for 3-5 year olds at our woodland at The Park Child and Family Centre in Accrington.

This is a unique opportunity for your child to learn and flourish in a natural woodland environment. Childcare will be provided by Adventure Hyndburn’s Little Stars Nursery practitioners, qualified and experienced in Early Years and Forest School leadership.

Children can have picnics in our picnic patch, enjoy story time on the story logs, sing songs in the magic circle and take part in woodland arts, crafts, and science in the woody workshop.

The benefits of Forest School are brilliant:

  • Enhances social and emotional development
  • Encourages independence and risk taking
  • Nurtures a love for the natural world through discovery, exploration and conservation

  • Letting children be curious and learn through play
