Tuesday mornings (in term time) 9.15am – 10.30am
Please see below for specific dates but blocks of 6-7 x sessions run every half term.
Our toddler group is ideally suited to those tots who are walking, to pre-school children and home school children plus their parents/guardians who want to get outdoors, play in a natural environment, natter and eat yummy cake….come rain or shine!
What to expect
Our toddler group sessions follow a Forest School ethos which involves child led learning in a woodland environment. We provide all of the resources for children to explore this environment at their own pace including, for example:
- muddy play
- art, craft, mark making and creating
- imaginative play
- quiet time (including story books)
- exploring the local flora and fauna
- balancing, climbing and swinging
We also offer one structured activity each week. This may be cooking on the fire, a treasure hunt, a craft activity, storytelling – it varies according to the age of the children and their interests.
Sessions usually start with a quick welcome song and an explanation of that week’s activities and end with a sing song round the fire.
Refreshments are an important part of our weekly sessions as we love a bit of cake! We provide a freshly baked good each week plus tea/coffee, water/juice for the children and fruit. Depending on the weather and the session marshmallows are often on offer for toasting on the fire.
Depending on the time of year we’ll be at one of our 2 log circles. Both log circles are a 10 minute walk (with little ones) from the car park. They are both accessible with pushchairs. To get to the log circle on the right of the track you’ll just need to give us a shout and we’ll help you lift the pushchair over the (very small) stream.
