Exeter Forest School Kindergarten

Opened in Autumn 2015, our Forest School Kindergarten has become one of Exeter’s most popular pre-schools. Set within beautiful woodlands, with access to a neighbouring stream and field, children are encouraged to be outdoors as much as possible. For days when the weather stops play, there’s a cosy log cabin with a wood burning stove to shelter in. 

The Kindergarten is Ofsted registered and you can use your 15 Early Years Entitlement Funding, or your 30 free childcare hours.
