In a modern world full of an abundance of technology everywhere we turn, we know that people are spending less and less time outdoors in nature. Little Cubs Academy was founded on the principal belief that children should be children, allowed to explore, to discover, to have access to fresh air, and to be able to roam outside where they can be as free as possible. We promote and learn about the natural environment and the world we live in throughout out settings, whether one is indoors or outdoors – we celebrate and advocate the idea that the outdoors is an extension of the classroom and an integral part of learning.
Each of our nurseries and pre-schools have their own designated and fully qualified forest school teacher who will lead the forest school programme for that setting. Children will be involved in forest school at specially chosen nature reserves, woodlands, parks, and farms, in the vicinity of each location.
