We offer Drop-in sessions for children aged 1-5 year old and their parents. These two hours Forest School sessions would run every Wednesday morning from 10am to 11:30, an enjoyable time for you to spend with you child in a natural and outdoor environment.
 
This a great opportunity for your children to connect and engage with nature through a variety of outdoor learning experiences including tree climbing, mud painting, den building, digging for bugs, fire-making and cooking. Get your children to experience and embrace the outdoors and natural world.

Research shows that working together outdoors in a natural environment is beneficial to a sense of well-being, promotes self-confidence and self-esteem, and encourages the promotion of good communication and social skills.
