Our Home Education Family Group is for home educating families to attend with their younger children before they are old enough for our all day sessions. Whilst the majority of attendees tend to be under 8, older siblings are welcome to come as well. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet other home educating families and to have some fun in the woods, exploring our beautiful grounds and getting some dedicated time for child-led play and forest school activities. Each session involves firelighting, a led activity (such as bird feeder making, woodwork, team games, campfire cooking and more!), hot chocolate and plenty of time for exploration and fun in the woods!
Our Home Education Family Group runs on Tuesdays from 9-11.30am at The Forest School at Exmouth on the following dates:
Autumn 2 – 30th October – 15th December 2023
Christmas Break: Please note our office is closed 16th December 2023 – 2nd January 2024
Spring 1 – 4th January – 9th February 2024
Spring 2 – 19th February – 28th March 2024
Each session involves firelighting, a led activity (such as bird feeder making, woodwork, team games, campfire cooking and more!), hot chocolate and plenty of time for exploration and fun in the woods! Whilst the majority of attendees tend to be under 8, older siblings are welcome to attend as well. This group is specifically aimed at home educating children not yet old enough to attend our older Home Education groups to attend with their parents or carers.
“I cannot praise Debbie highly enough for how she has helped and cared for my son since he started. Not only does he enjoy himself, he has developed and flourished. We are so grateful for her support and understanding – and the bond she has built with him.”
“The professional attitude and caring nature of the staff means I completely trust my children to your care and I know that they are developing and having a wonderful time in the forest.”
“Your relaxed (non judgemental) approach has helped with my son’s self confidence no end. To be in an environment with adults and not feel scared of them has been in such contrast to school. Thank you. So maybe it’s what you are not as well as what you are!”
