The Enhanced Nursery Experience...
Would you like your child to benefit from unique challenges and adventures before they start school? At Woodland Outdoor Kindergartens, we provide early learning and childcare experiences which will develop your child’s resilience, independence, and confidence.
Our outdoor classrooms are based in stunning woodland settings across Glasgow where children thrive learning and playing outdoors throughout the seasons. Woodland Outdoor Kindergartens are highly rated by the Care Inspectorate and are at the forefront of early learning and childcare in Scotland.
Join the childcare revolution! Contact us now to arrange a visit or free trial day at either our South Side or West End Kindergarten.
We know the benefits of outdoor learning, exercise and play for young children in terms of their health and wellbeing and their physical and cognitive development. Playing, learning and having fun outdoors helps to improve wellbeing and resilience, increase health through physical activity and allows children to use the natural world to help develop curiosity and science skills.
The youngsters who have access to this kind of care at such an early age will develop a confidence in and love of the outdoors that will benefit them in the future.
My child attended an indoor nursery for two years before joining Woodlands and we are in no doubt he finds Woodlands nursery a more positive experience in every way.
Being out all day regardless of the weather teaches children resilience and to accept that bad weather isn’t reason for being indoors. The quality of staff is strikingly high and the level of organisation has continually impressed me. A fabulous opportunity for children, unmatched in other educational organisations.
We Love Wintertime!
Winter is the most magical time in the woods....icy puddles, crunchy leaves, low winter sun, and if we are lucky, giant snowballs! Children benefit from outdoor play and fresh air all year round so when the nights are drawing in and the temperatures are dropping, wrap your children up and let us take them to the woods to play and learn all day in this magical environment.
Children are welcome to start attending the kindergarten at any time throughout the year. We are open 51 weeks of the year and have some fully funded places available for November and December starts. This means that your child can enjoy the benefits of our kindergarten at no cost to you.
