From September 2017, you may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year, which you can choose how you take). If you’re eligible for the extra hours, you sign up online to get a code to give to your childcare provider to reserve your place. You’ll get the extra hours once the next term starts.


Kids adVentures Forest School is here

Posted on June 5th, 2017

We are very excited to be starting Forest School at Garden Needs / Kersal Dale – www.gardenneeds.org.uk. Garden Needs is the ideal base for us to go out and explore, have fun and learn in the beautiful Kersal Dale which is less than a mile from our Prestwich nursery.
Our Forestry School will run as an additional activity for our nursery children during term times. We are also opening our Forestry School as a holiday club during school holidays.
We will also be looking to work with other groups as we are excited about giving as many children (and adults) access to this fantastic facility.
Forest School is an inspirational concept providing learning opportunities through practical activities in an outdoor environment. Children enjoy the freedom to explore and experience the natural world in all seasons and in all weathers. Forest School embraces an approach of nurturing, supporting and developing the self-esteem of participants. It is an ideal environment in which to develop innovation, problem solving, risk taking, creativity and teamwork.
