“In Little Forest the child’s interests take centre stage. We have a variety of tools always accessible for the children to use. We have mud kitchen, shovels and spades, a planting area where the children can plant their own bulbs and plants. We have sensory plants and access to local wildlife that the children can observe at their own leisure. We use learner-led, nature based exploration which helps your child to develop their emotional intelligence; build resilience and learn how to take risks in a supportive environment, through activities such as bug hunting, making mud pies and building with sticks.
Outdoor learning also teaches children the value of protecting the environment around them.
The children have open access to Little Forest from 9am until 4pm; in good weather the children are able to have their lunch and snacks outside in our heated Little Shelter.”
