Early Years Forest Club

What happens at Forest Club?

Our Forest Club Sessions are filled with fun and fresh air!

Sessions offer lots of opportunities for children to be in charge! There are regular areas of activity, so children feel safe, familiar and confident, the mud kitchen, digging pit, bug hunting areas are firm favourites.

Each week they will also find a new invitation to make, create or explore. Activities are usually nature- based crafts, seasonal or link to themes in the art gallery.

Our amazing team of Forest Club and Learning Leaders, along with the super skilled volunteers will support and guide you and your child if you need it. The aim of the session is to encourage your child to explore and lead the play and discovery for themselves and of course learn the marshmallow rules!

Join us for a Jubilee Themed Forest Club on Thursday 2 June, where we will make:

  • Nature crowns
  • Pine cone queen bees
  • Design the Queen a nature inspired gown

Why is it great for children ( and adults!)?

Spending time in nature, nurtures children’s creativity, promotes good health, inspires problem solving, encourages risk taking and enables children to really connect with the natural environment.

Developing self-confidence, imagination, collaboration and resilience in challenging circumstances are skills vital to our young people! Taking part in activities like these are a great place to start.
