Wood Mouse Forest School A Parent and Child Woodland Experience Ages 3 to 5
Mondays 10am to 12 noon Meeting fortnightly during term time. £51.00for 6 sessions per term. One parent, one child.
Hands on outdoor, exploring and learning experience. Sustainable and green, we only use natural resources and work in our forest school area which has a shelter, fire pit and seating.
Forest School happens over time. If children attend regularly it develops their motivation, stamina and motor skills. It also supports emotional and social development, and increases confidence. Each child will get the chance to develop their own interests within the Forest School setting.
Working with "one parent and one child" allows us to introduce responsible risk taking at a very early age. It helps children to achieve their goals and learn to problem solve.
The activities will change with the seasons. You will experience . . .
