About Forest School

Forest Schools is an inspirational educational ethos that focuses on developing children’s personal, social and emotional development through regular outdoor woodland experience. At Little Explorers Forest School, all the babies and children have daily access to a range of outdoor experiences. Highly qualified and experienced Forest school leaders plan activities that scaffold children’s play, learning and development, enabling children to build on their own experiences and realise their potential while exploring the natural world.

Keeping your children safe is always our top priority. Daily risk assessments are carried out by a qualified member of staff who assesses the environment, activities, weather and children’s stage of development to ensure that activities are suitable and that the challenge of the Forest School is balanced against the risks.

These are some of the typical activities that our Little Explorers are offered during Forest school sessions

  • Daily access to ‘Blue Bells’ wood
  • Sensory exploration of the outdoor environment
  • Den making and shelter building
  • Nature hunts
  • Pond dipping
  • Tractor rides
  • Visits to our Farm
  • Growing and maintaining our own vegetable plot
