Our Forest Kindergarten

Our Forest Kindergarten is situated in woodland belonging to East Grinstead Sports Club. We spend the days outdoors and move around this wonderful 32 acre site. 

Den building - always a favourite! To build.....and then re-build.

A field to run around on...

As well as the woodland there is also lots of space to run around and play games on the field. Sometimes we are lucky enough to see the steam trains from the Bluebell railway pass by too!
