Linskill Nursery in North Shields is expanding its curriculum activities with the introduction of an outdoor, nature based learning programme this September. Linskill Nursery will be the first day care nursery in the area to offer Forest School to its pre-school children.

Forest School focuses on the all-round development of children with proven health and well-being benefits and following funding from the Wellesley Trust the nursery’s pre-school children (3-5 years) will have the opportunity to take part in weekly sessions at the nearby Northumberland Park. An Education Warden will deliver activities using the outdoor environment to develop skills whilst learning about flora, fauna and the natural environment.
