Forest School sessions for babies and children and their important grown up in beautiful Semley woodland.
'In a forest of a hundred thousand trees, no two leaves are alike. And no two journeys along the same path are alike.'
MORE ABOUT FOREST ELDER
Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.
- Forest School Association
Chaldicott Barns are surrounded by 40 acres of beautiful natural woodland where we will hold our sessions. We have a wonderful site within the woodland of field maple, ash, willow, oak, beech and birch. There is a small pond close to our base.
MORE ABOUT ME
I’m a Mum of two beautiful boys, aged 4 and 2 years old, and step-Mum to a fantastic 11 year old girl and 13 year old boy. Before retraining as a Forest School Leader, I worked for the National Trust for 10 years so nature, the environment and children’s relationship with it has been in my heart a long time. Forest school is a gentle, child led outdoor experience that I’m really passionate about!
I am in the final stages of completing my training as a Forest School leader - I have completed all my formal training (with the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust), am fully insured to hold Forest School sessions, qualified in outdoor and paediatric first aid and have a CACHE qualification in Children and Young People's Mental Health.
FOREST ELDER SESSIONS
Classes are completely outdoors and child led, so whilst I always come with a plan, we follow little ones' interests - please do expect mud, leaves, sticks and lots of fun and wonder!
I always have lots of free access activities available, as well as one or two that I’ll show you and help you/littles with.
In the Mum and Baby group there will be lots of sensory activities for bubbas, and for Mums, a focus on your wellbeing and mental health, with hopefully some space to enjoy a few activities and recharge in the beautiful woodland too.
My sessions include a forage themed hot drink for adults (or cold if it's super hot) and snack for everyone.
If you would like to bring more than one child please do get in touch for sibling rates and to book.
