Forest School

Adventurous Acorns Forest School @ Cippenham Nursery School

At Adventurous Acorns Forest School @ Cippenham Nursery School, we passionately believe that children (and adults!) have a right to quality outdoor learning experiences. We maintain a Forest School in our own school grounds, and it is against this enchanting natural backdrop that we lead Forest School and other outdoor learning activities. The aim of each session is to embrace the developmental opportunities that this glorious natural playground presents, enabling all learners to connect with nature, whilst engaging through a playful and practical approach and having fun along the way.


We have three Level 3 qualified Forest School Leaders:
