Forest School

Our Vision

The Stephen Perse Nurseries are part of the Stephen Perse Foundation, a family of co-educational independent schools in Cambridge and Saffron Walden.  There are three nursery schools: in the centre of Cambridge, to the west of Cambridge in Madingley and in Saffron Walden, all providing the same care, curriculum and vision for education using the child-centred inspirational learning process Forest School.

The first years of education are a voyage of discovery – exploring, questioning, initiating ideas and taking pride in every achievement.

We lay the foundations for a lifelong love of learning, working closely with parents and sharing each child’s experiences as they explore the world around them, learning through play and beginning their journey of independent, creative and reflective thinking.
