Troll nursery children are outside, come sun, rain, wind or snow, all year round. Should the weather really try us, we have access to a heated trailer or emergency accommodation.
Natural objects which the children find in the woods, encourage their fantasy. They craft and invent their own toys. Forest nursery children learn to be mindful of the natural world and take responsibility for themselves and the group. They follow the changing seasons, observe and identify wild animals and have lots of space for free play.
At Troll, children come home dirty, rosy-cheeked and happy.
