Welcome to Grasshoppers
At Grasshoppers Nursery, finding time to experience nature is of high priority.
Grasshoppers is a nursery for two to five year olds nestled in 25 acres of outstanding natural beauty, with a ‘home from home’ indoor space. We believe that the closer to nature the children are, the happier they will be and the more they will learn.
Free to explore nature’s riches, a child’s senses are heightened, which enhances their creative and imaginative play.
Our focus is on ‘the whole child’ and helping them develop at their own pace in their own way, whilst achieving the Early Years Foundation Stage goals.
During our day the children can go for walks, have picnics, jump in puddles, chase butterflies and clamber over fallen branches, make sand castles, mud pies and imaginative potions, smell flowers, rain and damp leaves, listen to bird song, the cracking of ice and the wind in the trees. Grow vegetables and flowers and visit some of the animals onsite. Our daily activities will include the likes of painting, singing, dancing, story telling, natural crafts and baking bread.
You won’t find many plastic toys at Grasshoppers. Instead your child will discover a treasure trove of beautiful wooden toys, natural pieces and authentic resources. These materials stimulate little imaginations and inspire curiosity, creativity and problem solving.
Our setting is designed to nurture the awe and wonder of childhood, and our team is committed to empowering every little hopper we care for to blossom in their own unique way.
