A new nursery focused on giving toddlers an outdoor learning experience is set to open in Chiswick.
Little Forest Folk, founded by James and Leanna Barrett, is a place where nature is used to learn about counting, literacy and science among other things.
It is set to open its doors at the Piccolo Play Centre on Dukes Road on April 11, and will introduce children to the open woodlands in Kew Gardens and Chiswick House and Gardens where a base has been set up for children to enjoy the outdoors.
They will learn maths through counting pine cones, learn about risks from climbing trees and balancing on logs, and put their creative minds to use transforming trees into pirate ships, a hospital or even a space rocket.
Back indoors at the play centre they will be introduced to tots yoga, toddler coding and cookery lessons to name a few.
Manager Rachael, former manager of Maggie & Rose Village Nursery in Chiswick, said: "It is so exciting to be bringing our forest school to Chiswick.
"We can’t wait to meet all of our new friends and introduce them to the absolute joy of outdoor learning and it’s many benefits."
An open day for parents along with their little ones to get a taste of what the nursery has to offer is being held on March 17 at the Piccolo Play Centre from 10am to 4pm.
Information sessions to discover more about the nursery will be held at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm.

Drop in parents will be accommodated too but its best to book.
Chiswick will be the third nursery to open in London after Wimbledon and Wandsworth.
