Forest School learning

At Enchanted Wood much of our focus is on outside learning to encourage all areas of child development. The outdoors is the perfect place to promote a child’s free play. Nature provides a variety of sounds, colours, textures, and places for children to discover. There are opportunities for children to learn problem solving skills, motor-function, social-skills, self-awareness and emotional intelligence.

Merve, September 2018

“Amazing preschool! My son absolutely loved it and came on leaps and bounds.. He has autism and when he started this preschool he didn't speak and he's left being able to communicate using words which is just brilliant! Lovely helpful staff and an all round lovely preschool!”

Mimi, August 2017

“My grandson has had an amazing preschool experience at Enchanted Wood. The staff are
very kind and enthusiastic, the grounds are great for the forest school and we don’t think Josh could have had a better couple of years which prepared him very well for his next step to big school.”

Malcolm, July 2018
