Tuesday mornings 9.15am – 10.30am and Wednesday mornings 10am – 11.15am
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, and natter ….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.
All of our sessions are risk assessed and additional measures will be put in place to minimise the risk of Covid-19. Additional hand washing has been introduced and some resources may be limited to reduce the risk of infection. A maximum number of 15 x adults will be allowed to attend.
Sessions usually start with a quick welcome song and an explanation of that week’s activities and end with a socially distanced sing song round the fire.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we are unable to offer refreshments in our sessions. Please feel free to bring a snack and a drink with you. Depending on the weather and the session, marshmallows are on offer for toasting on the fire.
The 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.
