About Us

Our Approach

Our Approach

Little Squirrels Play Forest takes inspiration from initiatives such as Forest Schools and the curiosity approach whereby children are given freedom and independence, where the child leads the situation and evolves and adapts as a result. To help, we have various areas that are all designed to offer children a challenging and stimulating environment where skills are learnt through play and experience. We have a sensory area, messy play, role play, water wall, loose parts play, an outside area and much more; all designed to provide your children with a fun way to grow and develop.  

We exist to genuinely provide a service to you and your children that is of benefit to you both. We are avid believers in children learning by experience, we aim to create an enabling, loving environment where learning is based purely where their imagination takes them. We want to encourage both your child and yourselves to let your imaginations flow in our Play Forest, use what we have and become part of the Little Squirrels family.

Our Story

Our Ethos

We believe every child is unique, their individuality should be nurtured, cherished and encouraged to blossom.

At our centre we strongly believe in nurturing your child’s self esteem and self confidence allowing them to feel safe, secure and ready to engage, explore and learn.

Strong parent partnerships are vital in our approach, we want you to feel part of your child’s early years experience with us.  As the main educators of your child, your knowledge and understanding of their individual personalities provide a breath of knowledge which helps us to support your child as best as possible whilst with us.  Creating a home away from home provides your child the best start to their education as they feel secure to explore and engage in sustained deep shared thinking.
