Log Circle

Our log circle is where any activities related to tools or fire will happen. This is also where the hot drinks and snacks will be. Next to our log circle is our arts and crafts area.

Q

Wild Area

Our wild area includes a bird watching area with bird feeders, information sheets about birds that live at our woodland and a bird hide. We also have a suction cup archery set on the other end of our wild area. 

Q

Stream and Water Play

We have a stream that runs through our woodland where children can explore, splash, and look for wildlife that lives there. There is also a tree swing that goes over the stream and a rope to climb up the hill behind it which adds a great element of risk and challenge for the children. In front of the stream we have a water play pallet and music area.
