Forest School Acorns

Forest School Acorns offers children an opportunity to explore and experience nature at their own pace.

It is a child-led experience, so our trained tutors will be there to support and guide children, but not direct them. This allows each child to lead their own learning while developing a range of life skills, including being able to assess and manage potential risks. Ideal for those aged 2-4 years, little ones will explore the forest through a range of age-appropriate activities in each session.

Our Forest School programmes are available to book in blocks of six, with sessions running every Tuesday during summer term.

Booking is essential. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
