Little Earth is all about inspiring the natural curiosity that’s within every child to learn through outdoor adventure, then nurturing and developing that curiosity in a relaxed and cosy, but more structured place of learning. Our approach brings together the very best from the popular outdoor based ‘Forest Schooling’, with the more traditional indoor nursery style care.
At Little Earth we are great believers in the Forest School ethos and notice that children who are given freedom to explore outdoors have more self-confidence, more self-esteem and more independence. Further more outdoor Learning has been linked with academic performance, better behaviour and overall well-being. These reasons have inspired us to create the Little Earth Garden, our very own outdoor classroom where learning becomes a wondrous and fun adventure.
This is a wonderful opportunity for your little ones to run around the Little Earth garden, cooking over fires, using tools, building dens, playing in mud, dyeing fabric with berries, learning about the trees, the animals and themselves. Through their play they are learning about the world as well as covering the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
