When children are given the space to explore in nature it helps them to build confidence, independence, and self-esteem. Forest school teaches the children to manage their play boundaries, evaluate risks and look out for each other.

You don’t need four walls and desk to learn and FS encourages children to learn by doing. We give the children space to find their own passions and skills but are always on hand to help them develop.

These sessions run from my garden in Farnham and the woodlands on the other side of the garden gate. We spend the first half and hour in the woods exploring and playing and then head to the fire circle for snack and a camp fire followed by lots of play. The garden has a large mud kitchen area, hill slide, climbing ramp, slow worms, bell tent for stories and nature crafts and small world play.

 

 

Activities

Activities will include den making, campfire cooking, nature crafts, bug hunts, story walks, mud kitchens, obstacle courses, trails, learning about flora and fauna, games and of course time for lots of play.

What to expect

Our Farnham site has a garden fire circle, bell tent, large woodland with pond, mud kitchen, hill slide and lots of space to play.

Who is it for?

Our Pre-School clubs are for children aged 2 to 5 years. One adult stays to join in the fun.

Health & Safety

Our Stay & Play will have a level 3 trained Forest School leader running the session.

The Forest School leader holds an outdoor first aid certificate and all staff have DBS checks.

Forest School encourages appropriate risks that can lead to muddy faces and scrapped knees. We introduce fire safety as well and learning about looking out for yourself and each other. We discuss safe stick and stone play as well and our no lick, no pick rule. We have a hand wash station set up in the trees.
