Sunday Autumn Family Forest School PM Session
Time & Location
About the Event
Little Forest Feet is running parent toddler Forest School sessions in our beautiful woodland in Weston, Hertfordshire.
The session will last for 2 hours and is run by a qualified Forest School Level 3 practitioner who is also a trained Primary School Teacher (with an Early Years Specialism). 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. Practitioners will model language to help promote children's risky play in a safe way and will use the environments wonderful natural resources to support open ended play.
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!
Do I need to pay for my baby in a sling?
- No, families do not need to pay for babies still in slings/carriers if attending with one paying child/adult.
What do you do if it rains?
- We have fun jumping in the muddy puddles! We do have some tarps we can put up to shelter some areas but the children normally just want to play out in the rain! In the event of storms or high winds, sessions are cancelled for everyone's safety,
What if I want to bring a relative/friend along for just one session?
- Please email me to arrange this firstname.lastname@example.org
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! (Even when it is hot and sunny, the temperature is much lower in a woodland... if in doubt, add some layers).
Parents please bring:
A travel mug/cup for a warm hot drink for yourselves, there will be hot water for you to help yourself to throughout the session! (We have smaller mugs for the children).
Book online and ensure you have filled out a registration form 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.
Due to admin, planning and preparation we do not offer refunds on tickets once they have been bought however in circumstances where Little Forest Feet deems a refund necessary, 75% of the ticket price will be refunded to cover admin and booking fees.
