HARE runs Forest School sessions in Parkend, Gloucestershire.

Our Parent & Child Forest School sessions for Home Educating Families are now open to families with children of all ages.

Our play-based sessions run on a Forest School structure, incorporating mindfulness and activities to improve well-being. They include activities such as whittling, fire lighting, den building and other bushcraft skills.  Art and crafts, such as painting and clay.  Willow crafts and other traditional crafts.  Circle time, singing, games and a story. We will provide drinks, please bring a snack.  Forest school is not just for children.  Forest school is beneficial for people of all ages.  We find parents get a lot our of our sessions.

Our Parent & Child Forest School sessions for home educating families run on Monday morning during term time, 12:00pm to 3:00pm at Beaver Lodge, Whitecroft road, Parkend, Lydney, Gloucestershire, GL15 4HG.

These sessions are aimed at families with children aged 6 years plus.  You may bring younger siblings if you need to, but the activities on offer will mainly be designed for 6 years plus, with some play activities which will be suitable for all.  If all your children are under 6, please book our Parent & Toddler Forest School, which will be more suited to their needs.  We have several families attending the parent & toddler session who intend to home educate when their children are older.

Booking is through our website in half term blocks.  You can also book one-off trial sessions. If you can’t see a trial session you can make, please get in touch and we will open one for you.

Please subscribe to our mailing list (at the bottom of each page on our website) to be the first to hear when booking opens for a new half term, and to find out what else we re doing.

Please get in touch if you have any queries
