We are very pleased that Seedlings Day Nursery can carry on using the Forest school site at Garthorne Road Nature Reserve.

There will be two sessions on Tuesdays:
- Morning 9.30am-11.30am

All children should arrive by 9 am on Tuesdays as the first group will need to leave at 9.15 to use the time well.
By adding an afternoon session, we aim to take all pre-school children weekly rather than fortnightly.
