What people say about us:

“I look forward to Mondays. I am not working, just so me and Ted can come along to Forest School. The ability to play outside, no matter the weather with other children, has given him so many opportunities to socialise and develop his imagination. It brings out the little explorer in him, and I couldn’t be happier with the sessions. Sapphire and Mac are awesome!”


“Me and my daughter have only attended here a handful of times due to only being able to go during school holidays, but every time we’ve been we always feel welcomed. It’s such an amazing forest school with lots available for the children to do and explore the outdoors. My daughter’s favourite part is the water area especially when the chickens join for a splash. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!”
