Forest Friends Rising 5’s

Forest Friends Rising 5's

Inspired by the popularity of our Tree Tots Toddler groups, this Summer Term we are offering a new group to help prepare and nurture your little people as they progress towards school age. Specifically for those slightly older pre-schoolers who are to begin reception year from September, this will be an opportunity for them to develop social skills and friendships within a group whilst enjoying the woodland with similar aged children.

Run by an experienced Forest School Leader with inspiring  forest school activities, games and play in nature’s best playground, each session cost only £8 and can be booked in half termly blocks. Expect teamwork, woodland exploration, creative play, adventure and of course hot-chocolate and some of the finest campfire tea and coffee for you parents and carers.

Coronavirus Information
Due to the government guidelines surrounding businesses being covid-secure, we have had to introduce some additional measures to ensure the safety of the children attending and of our staff: 
  • There will be increased handwashing and regular cleaning of surfaces
  • Parents are asked to bring their own metal or plastic cups for their families hot drinks
  • Parents/carers will be asked to remain in their cars upon arrival until indicated otherwise by a member of staff
  • No child or parent should visit the woods if they have, or have been in contact with anyone displaying symptoms of covid-19 (without a negative test result or two weeks isolation)
  • Staff will be vigilant in recognising symptoms of covid-19 and have the right to to ask a family with a child displaying symptoms to leave the session early
  • There will be increased space between the children at hot chocolate time and children will not be allowed to share food
  • Leaders will be choosing activities that promote social distancing but parents will be responsible for their own children and how they interact with other attendees. As such, The Outdoors Group cannot guarantee that all attendees will adhere consistently to the 1-2m rule
  • The Outdoors Group will be actively partaking in the NHS Track and Trace system (although families can opt out if desired, please email us if you’d like to do so)
