Family Forest School Fun
Time & Location
About the Event
Little Forest Feet is collaborating with Join the Dots to run parent toddler Forest School sessions in our beautiful woodland in Weston, Hertfordshire.
The sessions will last for 2 hours and are run by two qualified Forest School Level 3 practitioners. The children are free to explore the space and we encourage them to lead their own learning. There will be areas set up for them to engage in natural messy/sensory play, cosy book areas, plenty of things to climb and places to play. Every session will have a different theme or nature activity that we will explore and we hope to give you more ideas of how to explore and enjoy the woods with your children.
Forest School benefits children (who attend regularly) in so many ways; greater independence, imagination, improved social and communication skills, physical development, risk management, understanding of the world, the ability to nurture, resilience, confidence and also their physical and mental health. It is also a great space for parents to engage with their children in a calming natural environment and there is nothing better than a warm drink around a campfire at the end!
The sessions are 100% outdoors, rain or shine! We have tarpaulins we put up and have some natural shelter however the children must be dressed appropriately so are ready for all weathers! There is no such thing as bad weather... just bad clothing!
The children must wear/bring:
Waterproof trousers and jacket/suit
Wellingtons or waterproof shoes
Woolly hat, scarf and gloves.
Complete change of clothes in a small backpack (long sleeved/legs to protect from bites, stings etc and two pairs of socks!)
The best way to keep warm is with lots of layers. We suggest a pair of tights/leggings under trousers and a vest, short sleeved top, long sleeved top, thin jumper, thicker jumper and a waterproof coat! It is better to have to take layers off than not have enough, being cold spoils the fun!
Book online and ensure you have filled out a registration form for your child. Once you have booked, you will be sent some additional information, including a full kit list, directions to the site and some information for your child.
In the event of very high winds or stormy weather, the session may need to be cancelled as it is not safe to carry out sessions in such weather. In this event, you will be contacted as soon as possible and will either be refunded or where possible offered an alternative date.
We hope to see you there! Questions? Please send them to email@example.com
