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!”

What we offer

Exceptional Facilities

Our unique outdoor space is over 3 acres and we have our own purpose built log cabin divided into 4 activity rooms. Facilities include an all-weather outdoor classroom, all-weather campfire pit, adventure playground, pirate ship, sand/mud pits, stream, bike-ability course, woodland area and vegetable garden.
