These sessions run following the Forest School ethos, where children can explore, discover, create and connect with nature with unstructured child-led play at its heart. There will be opportunities for children to develop woodland skills, work together setting up the campfire and cooking, be creative making woodland crafts, get muddy in our mud kitchen, relax in our hammocks, investigate in our woodland stream and more.
Sessions are run by experienced Forest School practitioners passionate about supporting your child’s personal development and wellbeing and facilitating experiences for you and your child(ren) to share in nature.
