Christow Pre-school is delighted to offer new Forest School sessions for all children attending the Pre-school. Following a successful Big Lottery Fund award, we have developed a purpose built Forest School site adjacent the Pre-school building. The site includes a fire pit, sheltered area, bug hotel, mud kitchen and tree house. We have two level 3 qualified Forest School teachers and offer sessions all year around in this superb outdoor learning environment. The Forest School ethos is based around the idea of children learning to take responsibility for their surrounding environment and inspires children to grow in confidence, self-esteem and independence; we feel it also greatly enriches a child's Pre-school experience.

  • Play-based learning for children aged two years old until they start school.

  • Excellent links with Christow Primary School with many opportunities to integrate into school life where appropriate e.g. sports day, harvest festival, charity events, assemblies, some trips etc.

  • A smooth transition from Pre-school to school with regular visits to the Hedgemoor (Reception/Year 1) classroom and combined activities with reception children prior to starting school.

  • Fun and friendship with other children and adults.

  • High quality education and care for children in a safe and caring environment.

  • Individual attention for your child in a warm and nurturing setting.
