There is never bad weather... just the wrong clothes!

Forest School

Messy Days Are Happy Days!

There’s nothing more satisfying to small hands than time spent outdoors getting involved in some exciting - and usually very messy games - and our dedicated Forest School leaders spend every single day helping children to do just that.

Set in over four acres of beautiful countryside, Scallywags Day Nursery, Westwick has its own bespoke ‘on site’ Forest School, with a purpose built mud kitchen taking pride of place.

Fun in the Scallywags Day Nursery mud kitchen

We run Forest School sessions all year round, led by our Forest School leaders. We respect each child’s interests and guide their curiosity in a stimulating yet relaxed way. In our mud kitchen we build sculptures and have lots of messy time, we paint masterpieces with leaves and twigs and we create new twists on wonderful traditional games - often to the sound of drumming sticks and singing. Outdoor clothes and wellington boots are provided and are an essential part of everyday life here at Scallywags.

Scallywags Forest School is a place full of imagination and an adventure every day – with plenty of mud to keep even the smallest hands happy.
