Home Education Groups
Get 'Out There' in the woods.....
Come and join us in our beautiful woods at our Forest School group for Home Educated children aged 6-12 years.
Home Ed Groups
Our Home Ed Groups are long term Forest School groups, offering fun, exploration and development of skills in the natural environment.
Our relaxed, learner-led philosophy allows children to learn and grow in a nurturing, inclusive, supportive environment... not to mention a whole lot of fun!
They can choose to learn new skills or develop existing ones, with ropes, campfires, woodland craft, tree climbing, nature connection, tool work, storytelling, shelter building, dens, bushcraft, archery, games and projects ... or choose to take time to relax, connect with nature and themselves, socialise round the campfire, swing in the hammock and just 'be'... or anything in between!
There are always plentiful hot drinks and campfire snacks to refuel with ... and we're very partial to a nice piece of cake too!
Our qualified and experienced Forest School Leaders use careful observation and reflection to tailor sessions to each individual's needs, interests and learning styles.
All of our Leaders are Forest School Leadership qualified, fully insured and DBS checked, First Aid and Safeguarding trained.
