Forest School - Parent and Child Group

In February 2022 we launched 2 Parent and Child groups in our amazing Forest School.

Explorers is for children aged 2-3 and Adventurers is for children aged 3-4.

Children must be accompanied by their parent or guardian. The group takes place every Wednesday (9.30 am -10.30am Explorers and 11.00 am - 12.00 pm for Adventurers) term time only on a first come, first served basis.

Based at The Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School in our own private forest. Forest School is wonderful holistic approach to playing outdoors.
