Summerlings Outdoor Nursery

Summerlings Outdoor Nursery For 3 – 5 Year Old Children

Summerlings is an outdoor nursery for 3-5 year olds based at the Shieling Project.

Through play in the outdoors children will develop their physical and mental ability, becoming comfortable and confident in the outdoors.  Our adventures will help develop a strong attachment to the local landscape, its past, present and future. There will be freedom, time and space for the children to enjoy and create their own learning journey.

Promoting sustainable living, connecting to the land and outdoors in their daily lives, children will be educated in the core functioning of a healthy life.  Above all else children who attend our day care facility will be in a happy, stimulating and safe environment dedicated to their fullest development and brightest future.
