Welcome to Fingertips

Fingertips is a well-established, warm, friendly, family-run local preschool and nursery based on two sites.  Our settings are happy, nurturing and rich environments where children can explore, discover, learn and grow in confidence. Fingertips was founded in 2010 by Jenny and Shaun who pioneered forest school in Harpenden in 2011.  We found that with these two pedagogical approaches, children developed at an accelerated rate.


We have a team of highly qualified and experienced staff and certified level 3 Forest School practitioners.  We provide a variety of care for 2 – 5-year olds, 5 days a week for 38 weeks of the year.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to you guys for all the love and support you have shown my son and I. I knew that forest school was the right environment for him but even I could not have predicted just how much he has grown - physically, emotionally - and your love has contributed so much to that. I could not have wished for better.

Our vision

At Fingertips, we consider every child to be a beautiful, creative, fascinating and independent individual with an enormous amount to offer the world.  We understand that the importance of the early years in a child’s development cannot be over-emphasised.  We aim to provide every child with a variety of rich environments to maximise the opportunities for them to explore and develop but more importantly to become independent, confident and happy learners.
