Celebrating and learning about inspirational women from at around the world this week.

Who might we become when we are older πŸ€”
We have been using our donated Christmas trees to camouflage the hedgehog house, den building, natural paint brushes and to support the use of scissors and loppers.
Sand involves lots of imaginary play, blueberry muffins, blueberry juice and lots more to eat and drink.

The children noticed different shapes in the sand made by the items they were using.

Good eye hand coordination is used when pouring and spooning the sand.

Last week, I visited Kim, Erica and the team at The Shepherd's Hut Day Nursery, and was blown away watching them working their socks off to ensure their nursery could be functioning safely and effectively for their young children as they prepare for reopening.

A gorgeous outdoor space for small children to have fun and express themselves.

Magical setting

Having established Chiltern Forest School we have watched school-age children thrive through outdoor learning and play. Seeing first-hand the positive impact Forest School has on the children, and in response to demand, we decided to extend this opportunity to pre-school children by opening our unique Outdoor Day Nursery. Through the magic of our beautiful outdoor setting, we combine child care with education allowing children to flourish and grow as individuals. We provide a foundation upon which children can learn whilst nurturing their personal and social development.

Based near Wendover on an enclosed and picturesque piece of farmland, in the foothills below Coombe Hill, The Shepherd’s Hut Outdoor Day Nursery comprises a number of structures. Designed with children at heart, we have a heated yurt for indoor activities, quiet time and inclement weather. Alongside this we have a designated Forest School area, mud kitchen, a fruit and vegetable patch where we will grow, cultivate and eat our harvest.
