One of the reasons we moved to Oban was for its outdoor nursery having lived in Glasgow when Maisy was a baby. We wanted both the girls to get a chance to spend time outdoors in all weathers and play freely the way we remember growing up.

We liked idea of preschool being in a non classroom environment. Maisy never realised she was at nursery to learn anything, which is brilliant because she learned so much this way.

Both girls enjoy/enjoyed the vastness of the site and the freedom they have/had to explore and make up games. Both love getting filthy! Making fires is always talked about (as well as marshmallows and making garlic bread ☺ )

They have both had different experiences settling in and one struggles a bit still but I believe she is happier in the outdoor setting than she would be indoors and she always seems to enjoy it by the end of the session. Being the less confident child, I see the biggest changes in her after starting at Stramash.

We chose stramash for our son because we loved the idea of him embracing the outdoors from an early age When asking Jack why he loves Stramash he says “I love water squirting and my stickman story in a circle. I love my lovely teachers – they sign us in. If I’m sad they give me a hug” Living where we do I love that jack is getting the opportunity to learn through the outdoors, gaining independence and knowledge – but in a fun,exciting yet safe environment. Jacks imagination has come alive since starting Stramash I always recommend Stramash to friends as we have been so impressed and happy with our choice of nursery for Jack
