open ended natural resources supporting the learning and play of young children

 The natural materials you find on this page are ethically sourced. They are made by us from timber grown in our sustainably managed woodland here in the North of England.
The wood is seasoned for a year or more before being hand washed, cut and sanded. We like to keep our wooden resources in their most natural form retaining many of the interesting and quirky characteristics of the tree. Children find them irresistible, explore them intuitively and use them in many creative ways.

‘The natural resources from Creative Woodland Resources are so versatile. We use them constantly at the nursery not only to support the children’s understanding of wood as a natural material, but also as an aid to support mathematical topics such as counting, pattern, size, weight as well as 2d and 3d shape recognition. As our nursery is set in an urban environment, the resources are valuable in allowing the children opportunities to explore real wood and gain an understanding of texture, colour, pattern and size in nature.’  Northfleet Nursery School, Kent
