Opening a nursery is not cheap! We will use any extra money you help us raise to provide the children with extra special open ended resources for their play to become even more exciting!

Hello There!

I am Sam! I am 27 years or 334 months old and I am a Primary School Teacher and Forest School Leader. I have always enjoyed taking my classes outside to learn, and over the years I have come to realise that the children would much rather be outside, happily spending the entire day out in nature, rain or shine!

I have a little boy called Harry who is part of my inspiration of doing this, he is 2 in January, or 22 months old. Since having Harry, I discovered even more so that children need to be outdoors for quality play experiences. No nurseries or child minders could provide this for him, so I am going to be offering an affordable forest school nursery experience for children ages 2-4 thought that I should give it a go!

I am going to open Wrexham's first fully outdoor forest school nursery! It will be called Little Hobbits. I will be aiming to open September 2020, and I am looking to fund this project through you lovely people at crowd funding, and through government grants and a business loan.

Anything you can give, will not only help me to realise my dream of running a forest school nursery, but will also give children in this area the best start to their young lives; a chance to play safely in a forest learning about their world with the best teachers.
