Muddy Footprints Outdoor

Muddy Footprints is a predominantly outdoor facility set in the beautiful surroundings in Garston adventure Playground.  We operate term time only, our opening times are 8am - closing at 4pm.  We focus on a relaxed atmosphere where staff are present with children whilst connecting with and investigating nature. We also have a building with an indoor space which children also use during high winds/large rain pours or when they chose to do so. 

We have a great outdoor environment and are working towards our personal intent  curriculum and specific communication and language  accreditation status this includes Eklan and Wellcomm to enhance  learning for all.  

We  have a strong focus on children's well being and we believe this is critical to being happy and building skills for their  future development. 

We are able to provide a quiet sensory room were children can relax, demonstrating and giving them the  tools required to regulate their emotions and supported with quiet music and fun yoga sessions .  

We are an inclusive setting and have experience working with children with a variety of special educational needs and disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, downs syndrome and challenging behaviour. The  team  use sensory integration plans with the children during their day at our setting. 

We are looking to extend  opening from term time to full time (all year) and closing  times from September 2022 until 6pm

We are currently accepting applications for 2 - 4 year olds
