We know that your life doesn’t stop when the school holidays start, so we offer holiday clubs with forest school, giving you the chance to get on with working or caring. We give your child a safe environment where they can spend time with their friends, have fun inside and out and come home tired and happy.
Our holiday club is based around the concept of Forest School which originates from Scandinavia. This involves learning in an outdoor environment with a play-based approach. The benefits of Forest School are many, for instance:
• At Forest School children are physically active for much of the time which is great for their overall physical and mental health.
• Children have space to take part in a “wild” yet entirely safe environment.
• The outdoors offers an engaging setting for children to learn how to solve problems, be creative and imaginative.
• There are always new things to see and hear which means new words and new knowledge.
• Forest School gives children the opportunity to have fun, play, get muddy together and simply be children and all without a screen!
• Our forest school is part of the fantastic outdoor space at our Hazel Avenue site and it’s the perfect place for children to explore through nature-based learning.
You can book places in advance. Our sessions run at Hazel Avenue during half-term holidays, at Easter and, for four weeks during the Summer break. A variety of sessions are on offer between 8.30am – 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
