Don't just take our word for it...
'I could not be happier with Faraway Tree! My daughter absolutely loves it and has developed so much since starting. As a fellow practitioner, I recognise the outstanding teaching and learning that happens on a daily basis. The team are passionately dedicated and this shows in the progress of the children's learning and wellbeing. I can't recommend this Kindergarten enough. Thank you for all your hard work ladies!'
Faraway Tree Kindergarten is a spectacular learning environment for children aged 2-5years. I love that my child learns through being around a natural environment where they can build positive friendships with children and staff, learn and improve on their core skills learning whilst exploring.
The photos on the website and Facebook pages truly are typical of their day at kindergarten, whether it be climbing on fallen trees, splashing in puddles, handling nature’s bugs in the allotments, feeding donkeys, or sailing a cardboard pirate ship wearing their painted hats and telescopes.
My child has needed additional support in one particular area, and the staff (and assigned key worker) have regular 1:1 sessions during activities to enhance the learning and keep me informed regularly with milestone reviews and are happy to share my child’s accomplishments on parent pick-up.
In my mind, Faraway Tree is excelling at getting my child “ready for school”..... learning to make friends, counting, alphabets, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, make good decisions, language and building confidence that they can do anything.
I would want to learn here.... it’s a fun, enthusiastic, adventurous, skill-filled, kind and happy kindergarten; I fully recommend and couldn’t have found a better place for my child.
'Faraway Tree is a truly special place. Kristie and her team go above and beyond to provide adventure, learning and fun while nurturing the children's love and respect for nature. The Kindergarten provides a safe, warm home from home for my son and a support network of friends for both him and myself. There's never a boring day- and my little man can't wait to go every morning.'
'Faraway Tree is such a wonderful setting and has made attending nursery a safe and fun reality for my little boy who has additional health needs. He loves getting close to nature every day and has come on leaps and bounds in his physical and cognitive abilities. We have all made friends and local connections in the village, benefitting our lives dramatically! Faraway Tree has been our saviour and I can't thank Kristie enough for her efforts. We highly recommend this setting.'
'We're delighted with the settling in period at Kindergarten. He's happy and excited about going to nursery.
I love the fact you spend so much time outdoors. It's exactly what I wanted for him, plenty of fresh air and exercise. He comes back happy and exhausted.'

He loves this place. Walks in the woods, lambs, puddles, sticks, what more could a two year old want? Oh, and lovely, caring staff. If you have a child of preschool age, and are local (ish) you should give it a go.
'Amazing range of new and thoughtful activities on each session. Going out for walks is one of his highlights. We love the outdoor learning you do!'
