Wednesday and Friday adventures for pre-schoolers
During term time, we run regular morning and afternoon classes every Wednesday and Friday in Coldfall Wood N10. This is a great opportunity for the little ones to develop independence and extend their learning through fun child-led play in a natural environment. It is ideal for children attending nurseries part time or those that would like to join a local Forest School playgroup. During our two hour sessions, parents are welcome to attend for as long as they feel it is necessary for their child to settle in and feel safe.
We use Early Years Foundation Stage framework as a guide for our planning and we use nature and natural resources as our main teaching and learning tools. We follow a holistic approach to children's development and we make sure that every child is given the opportunity to explore and learn about the world around them and about themselves at their own pace.
Cost: Seven weeks term - £119 / Six week term £102
Time: Wednesdays or Fridays; 10am-12pm or 1pm-3pm
After-school club (Coldfall Woods, N10)
During term time, the after-school adventure club is in the woods every Friday.
This is an invaluable opportunity for school children to spend time in nature. An hour and a half spent in the woods allows children to move around freely and release any suppressed energy. It helps them to clear their minds from any stress accumulated throughout the school day.
Regrettably, due to the shortage of daylight the club hibernates from November to February.
Cost: as per term - see our bookings
Time: Fridays 4pm-5.30pm
Weekend sessions (Coldfall Woods, N10)
During term time, we run two hour sessions every Saturday from 10.30am to 12.30pm or 1.30pm to 3.30pm, suitable for children of school age.
These six week courses run throughout the year, giving children a chance to experience all four seasons in the same woods. Children learn about nature by observing changes and adjusting to the changing environment that facilitates their play. With seasonal changes they discover what nature has to offer and how to use it creatively.
Cost: £90 per term
Time: Saturdays, 10.30am-12.30pm or 1.30pm-3.30pm
School holiday sessions
During school holidays, we run three day Forest School camps for school children, especially popular as they allow children time to live their own adventure, develop relationships and experience the real magic of Forest School. Children are given the opportunity to pursue their own interests, explore the world around them through child-led play and spend invaluable time in the wild, reconnecting with their inner self and the natural world.
Cost: £130 for three days
