A fun, nurturing, active & outdoor loving Pre-School & Holiday Club

We believe that children are the happiest when they are outdoors – gaining a sense of freedom to explore, to play and make friends in our welcoming, nurturing and positive environment. 

Forest School Approach

Our unique “Nature Play & Outdoor Learning” method of Early Years Education offers children the broadest range of learning experiences.


Children develop independence, confidence and a love of learning.  We place outdoor learning and forest school at the heart of everything we do. 

“Our principle at Go Outdoors is to encourage children to be children; to explore their environment, experiment and play, using their own imaginations to develop, learn and grow. Our outdoor space is our biggest learning environment and facilitates risk taking, social skills, physical development and most importantly, fun!”

Go Outdoors Learning, Pre-School & Holiday Club

OUR STORY Go Outdoors Pre-School & Holiday Club is the realisation of a shared dream to give children the best start in life by being free to play in a natural environment. We are a free, funded, term-time Nursery for 2-5 year olds and also run before/after school care and holiday club for children from 4-11 years. We are the sister setting to Ofsted Outstanding Giant Leap Childcare and Learning Centre, located right next to each other in Burnley, and run under the same ownership and management team, we have created a truly wonderful indoor and outdoor space for children to enjoy every day. We use a range of theories and methods, including elements from Forest Schooling, Montessori, Reggio, and the Curiosity Approach, and combine them all together into our own 'Go Outdoors' approach, which fits into our community and culture. Our passionate team are highly qualified and experienced, and are committed to the children's development and learning. We believe in encouraging independence and mindfulness through unstructured and open-ended play, and our unique setting gives children space and freedom, which promotes a child-led experience. We are passionate about making children happy and giving them the best possible opportunities, with an ethos of always doing the best we can for our children and their families.
