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.

Our Little Explorers Forest School club is currently running on Wednesdays 10.30-12 in Fleet Hampshire with Terry. Ellie will be back running the Tuesday and Friday sessions in Farnham and Fleet in the new year one she has had some time with baby number two due in October.

At both sites we have our fire circle in a lovely clearing, a fantastic section of trees for rope balancing and den building and a nature walk for bug hunting. We also have a craft area and of course lots of space for the children to explore, create, grow and learn at their own pace.

 

The benefits of Forest School develop more over time so current Explorers have priority booking for the next block of sessions.

Activities

Activities will include den making, slackline walking, 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 & Fleet sites both have large log fire circle, open space and more enclosed woodland area. We have a mix of trees from fir to oak, resident badgers and rabbits and will soon be building out own bug hotel.

There is plenty of parking and toilets at both sites. The Rural Life Centre is closed to the public on Tuesdays.

Who is it for?

Our Pre-School clubs are for children walking to 5 years. Parents get to stay and join in the fun.

Health & Safety

Our Little Explorers club will also have a level 3 trained Forest School leader running the session and depending on numbers an assistant.

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.
