If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.” 

Anything you can teach in an indoor classroom can be taught outdoors, often in ways that are more enjoyable for children.”

What Parents are Saying

Child aged 3

Nicki always fills Skyes (aged 3) days with fun and exciting experiences, all of which are appropriate for her age.

Skye is always excited about what she has done, we can honestly say we would not want her to go anywhere else.

Steve and Kate Carter

Child aged 5

They go to the park, feed the ducks, cinema on the bus to different places around Oxford including the dinosaur museum, he loves going there, thank you, you do a great job and he speaks so highly of you and the time he spends with you.

Chelsea Veale

Child aged 3

Exciting activities at home to trips to the library, groups, parks and further afield a bus. She has grown and become more confident. I am sure she will get the best school prep she could and will enjoy the process greatly.
