About us

Little Achievers Urban Forest School Nursery is situated close to the heart of Preston city centre. The nursery can welcome up to 72 children. Each child has their own key carer who looks to ensure early years’ potential is achieved. Our nursery is split into 3 age ranges however the rooms can flow easily to aid transition for children when moving to new groups.  Along with fully qualified childcare professionals, our nursery also has trained Forest School practitioners.

The aim of the friendly team of staff is to encourage children to confidently learn and develop, benefiting from a focus on key skills, such as numeracy, creativity literacy and curiosity. Little Achievers Urban Forest School Nursery uses the Reggio Emilia Approach to Early Years Childcare and Education, a philosophy that uses four key principles to focus on a child’s natural development. The approach is both child-centred and directed, taking the philosophy that learning must make sense to the child in order to be effective and meaningful.

Nursery places

All nursery pre-school children are able to access our own forest school, where children experience accelerated learning in a unique environment developing new skills, communication, improved health and personal development through learning outdoors. This time spent in outdoor spaces and reflective practice develops a child’s resilience and re-frames a child’s own view of risk. Forest school is about a different way of learning, the ever changing outdoors, the passage of time, the changes in seasons, nature, different sources of smells and textures.  Our ever changing environment can stimulate learning in a very different environment.

The nursery holds the coveted NDNA E-Quality award for providing high-quality childcare and education (2016)

Learning journeys for all children are offered both to see the progress their child is making at nursery via photographs, written comments and communication., along with being a beautiful portfolio of memories for the future.
