At Wildflowers Kindergarten in mid-Hampshire, children move, explore, create and play in woods and parkland each morning.
In the afternoon they rest, eat a warm meal and engage in activities inside or by a converted barn.
It was founded in 2005 by Helena Nilsson, who works with the children every day, and is independent from any organisation.
The quality and standards of Wildflowers’ provision of care and education were rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2010 and 2014:
“All areas of learning are covered in an exceptional way in the outdoor environment.”
“This kind of teaching, seizing every opportunity to encourage children’s development is inspirational.”
