Welcome to Little Forest Folk – fully outdoor forest nurseries that immerse two to five-year-olds in nature, helping them become creative, resilient little learners.

Our nurseries are situated in magical sites where children’s imaginations are free to run wild. We follow the core Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum and incorporate learning in a safe and secure outdoor environment, where free play, fresh air, exposure to the natural world and physical activity are an integral part of learning. 

Little Forest Folk is a social enterprise and we invest a share of our profits to provide full-time free places beyond the government allowance to eligible children. For more information about our social mission and to see if you are eligible for a free place please contact us.
