Due to overwhelming demand, we are delighted to announce that from September 2020, we are opening a second base camp at Balsall Common. We have limited places available each day; please contact us for more information and to request an enrolment pack. This is a unique opportunity to for your child to attend our Outstanding Nursery.
Where learning happens naturally!
Beatle Woods is the first truly outdoor nursery in the West Midlands; it is situated in a beautiful privately owned 10 acre woodland site on the edge of Balsall Common, close to Solihull, Kenilworth and Coventry.
We strongly believe that children need to be outdoors; spending time connecting with nature and building the essential skills we know are important for future life. Children spend all day outside at Beatle Woods, engaging in activities of their choice. We do not plan ahead or structure our days. We empower children to choose and our highly trained practitioners skilfully support and scaffold children’s learning and development where appropriate. Our practitioners interact and don’t interfere in children’s play.
We offer an abundance of learning opportunities that are open ended because we believe children learn best when they feel a sense of belonging and are empowered to then develop resilience, high levels of self -esteem and independence.
We want to ensure children develop a sense of wonder and curiosity for the world around them. Every opportunity is a learning opportunity; from swinging in the hammock, to climbing a tree. Children’s well-being is at the heart of all we do!
Beatle Woods provides care for children aged from 2 to 5 years and opens Monday to Friday term time only, from 9am to 3pm.
Beatle Woods is a special place where we offer care, professionalism, opportunity and nurture, in a truly child-led naturalistic environment. We aim to foster and consider children’s well-being and happiness whilst offering consistency, support and understanding. We believe that children in our nursery should be supported in free thinking and given time and opportunity to make their own choices.
Children must come to Beatle Woods with the correct clothing. The weather is often changeable and therefore we provide this kit list to assist you in ensuring your child is warm and dry during sessions.
