Summer holiday all day drop off sessions, booked on a week by week basis, bring your own lunch.

Nature Explorers is a safe place for children to learn and grow together in the outdoor and woodland environment. ‘It is about the process, not the product’ (Montessori).

Children are given the freedom to explore, create, learn, have fun, take supported and appropriate risks, and share community with others in the natural world. We encourage a love for nature and have a child-focused approach. Children can play and have choice. We share group games, teamwork activities, stories, nature crafts and create items with real tools. We build fires and cook campfire treats together (weather permitting).

Forest School sessions take place in all weathers, except in dangerously high winds, (sessions cancelled due to extreme weather are non refundable).

Things to bring with you

·  Long sleeves and long trousers due to possible insect bites and stings, unless very hot then short sleeves and shorts could be worn

·  Wellies if it is a wet day, trainers, or other closed shoes you do not mind getting muddy for dry days.

·  Wet weather all in ones/waterproofs for wet days or in case of a change in weather through the day

·  Pack lunch including extra snacks

·  Water bottle

·  Sun cream/Hat

·  Extra set of clothes

·  Any medication that needs to be taken during the day (labelled with child’s name and time to take)

Participants are strongly recommended and advised to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the outdoors. Some materials used in activities may stain clothing. Please dress for mud, mess and the weather. Simple snacks of fruit, biscuits etc are provided, though we recommend bringing your own snacks and drinks in a backpack to keep you going throughout the day. Walking boots or wellies are recommended and waterproof clothing is nesessary.

Activities are tailored for children’s needs and interests. We work with parents and children to meet individual learning needs so everyone can join in with fun at Forest School and planned activities if they wish.

Each session will have rough running timings and shape which will be as follows: -

·  9:00am Meet at the art shed in Nettle Hill car park (the red door) for registration.

·  Head out to the mud kitchen for free play and some games

·  Head to the forest for some fire safety and learning how to build a fire. (weather permitting)
