UK Nursery Enabling Environment of the Year

Our home, your home

Our greatest resource for creativity, exploration and investigation at Teasel Nursery School-on-the-Marina is undoubtedly our outdoors.


In addition to our indoor learning spaces, our unique location within Willowtree Marina and nature reserve allows for frequent duck and swan feeding, heron or boat watching, picnics and treasure hunts.


Regular visits into the surrounding woodlands is a key part of our Denmark-inspired Forest School approach. So a simple walk can lead to storytime, experimentation or observation of seasonal and wildlife changes. Our early years trained practitioners use their expertise in this area to maximise the opportunities for learning outdoors in safe and familiar surroundings.


Our own secure garden on site also allows continuous access to fresh air, space and learning outdoors whatever the weather.
