We are pleased to offer discounts to those families booking in more than one sibling to the same session and to families booking more than one day.
We offer a 10% sibling discount or a 15% ‘double day’ discount for those booking onto two days. The sibling discount will be automatically applied at checkout or if you’d prefer to access the double day discount for one child, please use the promotional code BLOCKBOOKING.
We are also happy to accept payment via a number of different Childcare Voucher Schemes. If you would like to pay for your Home Education Group booking using Childcare Vouchers, please contact us to place the booking.
Our Home Education Group run from 9am – 3.30pm at Okehampton Forest School on Wednesdays during term time.
We adopt a child-led approach, offering a range of activities at each session but ultimately the children are, by and large, in charge of their time. Our leaders focus on building ‘soft skills’ such as teamwork, communication skills, self-confidence and problem solving. No two sessions look the same but over the course of a term they are likely to include traditional Forest School activities such as fire-lighting, den building, campfire cooking and woodworking as well as crafts, long term projects, theatrical endeavours and lots of team games!
“I cannot praise Debbie (Okehampton) 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!”
