pre-school Play

walkers to age 5

Come and play in our vast, private woodland setting and enjoy all of our wonderful resources.

Our environment supports the development of many skills; it enables children to explore, investigate and provides the opportunity for embodied experiences where children get to use their bodies and senses. Our sessions are not particularly structured, we want you and your child to play together in the setting and in our experience this is the best way to learn! Vikki, our Forest School leader and Early Years teacher will be on hand to provide some support to play and to introduce new skills and concepts. Everyone is welcome to join in with the more facilitated part of the session but we would urge you to follow your child’s lead and do whatever motivates them in whatever way they choose.

Sessions will begin from April 2019 and will run on Monday and Friday mornings from 10-11.30am. Your child will get the most from the sessions once they are able to walk confidently and this is when we recommend you start coming from.

Pre-school Play sessions cost £8.00 for one off sessions and £7.50 if booked as a block. Babies in slings accompanying their older siblings are free but we ask that you book and pay for a space once your child turns one year old.

Sessions include access to our lovely woodland site, use of all the resources and supported play. Tea and coffee for adults will also be provided, just bring along your reusable cup and a snack for your child to enjoy.
