Forest Kindergarten Plans....
We are planning a Forest Kindergarten in Mid Sussex for September 2018: Treehoppers in East Grinstead where pre-school children will spend their days outside in the woods.
In the last few months we have visited some fantastic outdoor pre-schools & nurseries to get some inspiration and to see the concept in action. A big thank you to the staff and children at FRUK in Hackney, Rain or Shine in Tonbridge and Forest Kindergarten Sevenoaks for making us so welcome and for their advice & enthusiasm.
Our Ofsted application is now in and we wait to hear about a date for a pre-registration visit. In the meantime we are putting the finishing touches to our Parents handbook, policies & procedures and fee structure. In June/July we will organise some official Open Days and offer some short 2 hour drop off sessions.
If you have any questions, would like more information or want to register your interest please contact Suzanne at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would also encourage you to come along to our Family Forest School sessions 'Little Critters' with your child this term so that you can get more of a feel for what goes on and your little one can have fun in the woods.
We will soon be looking for qualified Early Years Professionals shortly to join our team - both on a part time basis, and as bank staff. Do get in touch if you would like us to keep you updated.
