Brand new to Radcliffe – a full time pre-school Forest School Nursery.
Kids adVentures, an already established nursery in Radcliffe, are expanding to offer a dedicated pre-school forest school site within 5 minutes walking distance of their nursery.
Here, 3 and 4 year olds will have the opportunity to learn within a safe and enclosed outdoor environment full time, led by a fully qualified forest school leader.
This dedicated pre-school forest school opened in August 2018.
The ‘family approach’ of the nursery works, not only for the children who attend, but also their families. Group sizes are kept small so that care can be on a personal level, tailored to meet the needs and interests of your child/children.
The nursery offers a safe and enclosed space for outdoor learning. Led by a forest school leader, alongside fully qualified nursery staff, the children learn through different outdoor adventures everyday.
The nursery itself caters for children from 3 months to 5 years old, with the full time forest school provision available for 3-5 years olds.
Government funded places are available and childcare vouchers are accepted.
The nursery’s emphasis is to provide quality care encompassing fun, learning, movement, well-being, nutrition and awareness.
The nursery’s chef designs tasty and nutritious meals made daily using fresh ingredients. Menus have achieved the Golden Apple Award which meets the high standards of nutrition and dental health.
Some of the activities at the nursery include: –
The Forest School also runs holiday clubs so your child can remain in the familiar environment they are used to. With activities including den making, mini beasting, clay creatures and nature walks, the kids are sure to have fun-filled days to remember.

Kids adVentures specialise in outdoor education and have recently opened their second Forest School in Radcliffe. Open to 4-12 year olds in school holidays and as a dedicated pre-school in term time, this is a modern way of learning, utilising nature and the outdoors as an inspirational classroom.
Here a fully qualified childcare team, headed by a Forest School leader, run a variety of outdoor activities from den making, and mini beast hunts to nature crafts and animal habitats.
The Forest School meets at the Kids adVentures Radcliffe Nursery on Sandford Street, where they walk 5 minutes to the full enclosed Forest School site.
The Forest School site has shelter and full facilities meaning that the children can enjoy the site all day long.
Rachel Doyle, Nursery Manager at Kids adVentures says: “The children love being outdoors, being in the open space really inspires the children to use their imagination to learn and play. The children naturally build communication and teamwork skills from doing activities like den making and they increase their confidence in general from trying new things.”
At the end of the day the group heads back to the nursery base where parents can pick up from 4.30pm onwards.
The holiday club is open from Monday 30th July through to Friday 31st August, from 7.30am to 6pm daily.
