Pamela Dori-Bishop reveals all about her Forest school nature nursery, Little Dragons

Forest adventures

Little Dragons is a small, 28-place nursery set in the grounds of a village school in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside. Opened in November 2006, the small, cosy, home-from-home setting is calm, relaxed, natural and organic. It is based in a modular building with natural flooring, lots of untreated timber and a huge amount of light flooding in.

There are no bright colours – everything is muted and calm with as many natural resources as possible. Surrounding the nursery is a vast expanse of grass, some mature trees and a child-size organic herb, fruit and vegetable garden. The food, which is cooked fresh every day, is mostly organic and bought from local producers, farms and farm shops. They compost, recycle and save on energy and water whenever possible.
