The nursery has been converted from what was originally a barn, which is adjacent to what used to be the farmhouse; therefore, the nursery is purpose built and offers a spacious environment. The Montessori classroom provides the environment and materials that the child needs for his/her personal development, which allows the child the freedom to choose their activities according to their own personal interests and readiness in a non-competitive environment. The Forest School area is part of the nursery grounds, which is used for Forest School activities, including a mud pit, a bark area and enables the children to cook using a fire. Children also get the opportunity to use a variety of tools to design and create. The area is a great environment for exploration and investigation to be undertaken.
