Little Oaks Sandgate is situated between Folkestone Girls Grammar school and Sandgate Primary School, within close proximity to the coast and Folkestone West train station. It has the beneﬁt of operating from a substantial character building, which has been renovated to a high standard oﬀering a unique and exciting environment both indoors and outside.
Close proximity to the coast and countryside allows regular access to beach / woodland sessions giving children the opportunity to engage and understand this wonderful resource. Supported by fully qualified and experienced woodland and coastal Rangers our children are not just taken on an outing but experience the outdoor classroom to its full benefit.
At Little Oaks Sandgate we aim to deliver high quality childcare that nurtures individual potential, providing a stimulating environment that extends beyond the classroom.
Children are encouraged to gain a greater understanding of our natural environment and knowledge of nature with qualiﬁed, experienced practitioners who support the children on a journey of discovery encouraging a resilience of character that will support them in their individual learning and development.
