Wildernest Day Nursery and Forest School
Bright and airy indoor environments and a fully enclosed 450m2 outdoor learning playground and classroom.
Wildernest Hove is located just 5 minutes from Hove station on foot.
Our provision for babies and toddlers under 30 months is located within our nursery building, where the children have access to our carefully prepared environments.
Our Older toddlers and preschool children spend 90% (sometimes 100%) of their day in our outdoor learning environment. Our outdoor environment has been carefully planned and divided to offer various learning opportunities. Children can explore in our nature trail, plant and tend to fruit and vegetables in our allotment, sculpt and build in the sandpits, bounce on the trampolines, develop their physical skills in our playground and engaged in more focused and group activities under our learning hut.
