Forest Play 0-5

November 27, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Our Forest Play 0-5 is a Parent & Toddler style Forest School session for families with children aged 0-5 years.

Parents, carers, grandparents and childminders are all welcome.

The session runs just like a Forest School session for older children, but adapted for younger children and includes sensory play and crafts, as well as a cosy area for babies and hot drinks for the adults. Our sessions are play-based with activities such as water play, mud kitchen, play dough, painting, natural crafts, songs, stories games and scavenger hunts. One of the children’s favourite activities is playing in the steam, spotting fish and other creatures.

We currently run every Monday morning during term time at Beaver Lodge in Parkend, Forest of Dean.

“HARE forest school sessions are brilliant! My daughter has grown so much in confidence as well as developing social and physical skills. She absolutely loves the sessions. There are no other groups like it. It’s a wonderful, child led introduction to the outdoors that will no doubt foster a lifelong love of nature.”

Gemma, Mum of 2 year old.

£57 for 8 weeks. Can be booked in shorter blocks or one off sessions.
