Set in acres of beautiful countryside, Forest Explorers has outdoor play areas, an orchard, a vegetable garden, mud kitchen and plenty of space for building dens and exploring. It also has the use of the first-class facilities of the Senior School including the astro, sports halls, theatre and music block.

Indoors, the Nursery has its own woodland themed wing in the Prep School that has been designed to stimulate young minds; a well-equipped space with a large outdoor play area flowing out of the rooms.

Whether it is reading, arts, crafts or music, children have a wide range of activities to choose from to nurture their curiosity and imagination through play and exploration.

Forest Explorers is run by highly qualified and specialist staff who support the children in every aspect of their development; ensuring their happiness, wellbeing and progress.

Outdoor Learning

A blended approach to learning inside the classroom and outside, all linked to the Early Years Curriculum, ensures that children develop a wide range of skills and a real love of the outdoors.

Outdoor learning is an essential part of our offer and children of all ages are encouraged to explore the beautiful outdoor spaces and woodland in Forest School. This allows children to develop skills of negotiation, resilience and independence, and equips them courage and confidence. In the forest, children can think creatively, step out of their comfort zone and work together with their friends. Their imaginations can run free, curiosity will creep in, and confidence and independence grow.


Sport plays an important part in our provision to develop well-rounded and confident individuals, and also in ensuring they participate in a rich and balanced curriculum.

Nursery pupils enjoy a programme of sport, led by specialist teachers using our astro, sports halls and swimming pool. Nursery children have a timetabled weekly swimming lesson taught by experienced teachers from Monson Swimming Club.

Children learn a range of skills including independence, communication and resilience. We encourage pupils to work together to understand how to follow rules and achieve common goals.
