Forest Schools

At Forest School, children are allowed time for free flowing, self-fulfilling play to make their own choices, to explore and to connect with nature and the environment, developing an appreciation and respect for the natural environment.

Play Session

Play Sessions are an excellent way for Educators and families to network whilst supervising and interacting with the children. It is an opportunity to engage in informal training, gain knowledge on experiences and support the children’s development through play.
