New Forest School term underway

Despite the nippy weather, the intrepid children (and parents!) of our Forest School are still meeting on the Farm twice a week for outdoor learning and adventure.

Forest Schools encourage children to learn through playing outdoors and by engaging in activities like den building, tree climbing or using tools. Our School runs in our magical little woodland every Thursday (am & pm) and Friday (am only). It’s aimed at little ones aged 18 months to 5 years.

The school is run by a qualified Forest School Leader and a primary school teacher with more than 10 years’ experience in teaching.

Children benefit most from Forest School by attending regularly, and it is usual practice for children to attend weekly over a minimum of 6 weeks. Taster sessions are offered, usually before the start of the 6-week block.

Age range: 18 Months-5 years. Forest floor crawlers and babes in arms go free when accompanying an older sibling. Booking essential and in advance only. Places are limited.

The dates for our next sessions are:

  • 11th January – 8th February: 6 week Forest School term
  • 22nd February – 30th March: 6 week Forest School term
  • Saturday 10th February – Family session
  • 19th April – 25th May: 6 week Forest School term
  • 7th June – 19th July: 6 week Forest School term
