Outstanding education in the outdoors for preschool and beyond...

Venture Outdoor Kindergarten was established in 2018 as an alternative to the standard nursery or preschool offerings available in the South Hams. Like every other preschool and nursery, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. But at Venture the children's experience goes above and beyond the statutory curriculum and what can be experienced at a conventional preschool or nursery.

What makes our kindergarten different to a conventional preschool or nursery?

We recognise that each child is a unique child and a competent child. We empower children to master and discover things for themselves.

Physical Play
We encourage children to challenge themselves, assess risk and develop physical independence.

Outdoor Learning
We inspire creative thinking, problem solving and a connection with the natural world in a multi-sensory outdoor environment.
