Get ready for an adventure!

Forest Play is an opportunity for parents and their children to spend time together, exploring the natural world, building new friendships and learning through play.

Each week we set out a number of  exciting activities for you to take part in if you choose to, though you are equally welcome to just play! Our sessions are designed to build confidence, creativity and resilience not just in our children!

Run by highly trained Forest School staff our sessions include things like... bug hunts, nature walks using hand tools, lighting fires, outdoor cooking, going on treasure hunts, making all sorts of crafts, getting covered in mud and having a wonderful time!

These sessions are run from our newly built toddler site where we have swings, play houses, mud kitchen, digging patch, growing areas, fire pit, pizza oven and loads of resources to make the most of.

Other Facilities:

We have...

  1. BulletLarge shelters should you not love getting soaking wet!

  2. BulletA proper (toddler friendly) toilet with baby changing facilities.

  3. BulletHot and cold drinks from our outdoor kitchen.

What should I bring?

  1. 1.A sense of adventure! Never leave home without a sense of adventure!

  2. 2.Warm clothes (for you and your little ones!) Layers are best and maybe a bag to keep them in (the clothes that is, not the children!)

  3. 3.Sun cream and a sun hat (maybe not in January though we can always hope!), otherwise warm hat and gloves.

  4. 4.Wellies are great but tiny feet can get cold and wellies can rub so make sure they have a few pairs of socks (socks... clean socks make really good mittens when its cold).

  5. 5.Waterproofs for when its time to dance in the rain.

  6. 6.A full change of clothes in the car (should they be needed).

  7. 7.Any medication if required (this is probably more apparent for a parent!).

What happens if I can’t make a session?

We have introduced a system which we call                                               

The idea is that if you know that you are going to be away on a particular date, that you fill out a Swaparoo and give it to a friend which will give them the value of the place you have paid for.
