Forest Nursery - Vision & Values

Vision & Values


“Joy, feeling one’s own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul.”
- Dr Maria Montessori


We believe the blend of Montessori and Forest School principles with the Early Years Foundation Stage, is providing the best possible learning environment for our nursery age children. Our experienced staff bring the setting alive and enable the learning, the friendship, the joy and the magic to take place…

We want our children to:

  • feel happiness, joy and a sense of belonging
  • experience kindness and reciprocate
  • develop friendships and be a good friend
  • be busy purposeful and creative
  • develop confidence and respect
  • become independent and responsible

Using all that we know, we will strive for our children to experience a magical beginning - one they will remember and benefit from for a life time…

“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.”

- Dr Maria Montessori

Meet our positive, experienced & dedicated staff!
