Our Ethos

At Grayswood Nursery and Forest School we provide a dynamic balance of a relaxed atmosphere together with establishing the joy of learning and the fun of childhood exploration.

We believe every child must be given time to explore, setting the foundations for a life long love of learning. We believe one of the best places for discovery to take place is within the natural environment, whatever the weather. Consequently, together with a well resourced indoor classroom we place significant emphasis on free-flow to our outside area and most particularly on our Forest School sessions where talk, achievements and discovery are fostered, encouraged and celebrated.

At the heart of all we do is the holistic development and pastoral care of each individual child thereby providing a secure environment to thrive and grow ready for the next step in the world and academic learning.


“Thank you for all the attention you have shown and the excitement when he achieved even the smallest thing. For all the hand in hand walks with Mr Dean and endless manly ‘conversations’. Thanks “
