Forest Kids aims to:

  • provide the highest possible standard of affordable childcare and education;
  • provide an inclusive, safe, fun, friendly, play centred, enjoyable environment where children can develop, play and learn in a positive way in a warm friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

We are an independent organisation registered with and inspected by Ofsted (EY557757), providing both the education of pre-school children aged 2 to 5 years and also a breakfast and after school club, currently servicing Oakhill Primary School children. We would like to develop links with other local primary schools. Forest Kids also recently organised a weekly drop-in, stay and play, messy playgroup.

We are based in Wingrove Hall and the space is very well suited to childcare, offering a large space to enable us to keep the children busy with lots of varied activities. We will use the large hall for snacks, crafts, construction, creative play, using the Wii, table tennis, film watching and book reading. We also have access to an outdoor play area.

We welcome children from all backgrounds and are an equal opportunity organisation and are committed to a working environment that is free from any form of discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation or disability.

Over the years I have experienced many child care settings and of all of them I would recommend Forest Kids far and away the best of all of them. (more…)


Our children have been attending Forest Kids since the business started. Throughout the period Helen and Natasha have provided amazing care for them. (more…)
