The Woodlanders

A new Home Education Group for play and self-regulation skills at
Exmouth Forest School 

Our home education sessions have been an integral part of our Forest School provision since our setup. Throughout this time we’ve had the privilege to work with hundreds of children and build a service which reflects their needs. 

We know that children develop their play skills at different rates, some may have Autism or other learning differences (sometimes called Neuro-diversity) requiring a slightly more tailored approach to forest school. Being part of a large established group may present anxieties that make our standard group unsuitable. 

There are many reasons why people may choose to educate their children outside of the mainstream yet put simply, they are all motivated to provide an education that best suits the needs of their children. Our Forest Schools aim to reduce social and emotional pressures, support growing independence and confidence, and provide a place to thrive.

With this in mind we are pleased to be offering a new group from October called The Woodlanders at Exmouth Forest School. 

We will be holding a drop in session 10.00-12.00pm Friday 18th October at Exmouth Forest School (contacts below)

This group has a focus on play and self-regulation skills together we’ll;

  • Discover about forest animals, trees and other living things and tell their stories.
  • Play and learn new games in the woods. 
  • Spend time in hammocks and find out things that help us be in a good place to be.
  • Lots of fun and more fun.

The Woodlanders will be small group of young people (ages 6-13 years) who like it when the woods are a calm and safe.  There will be maximum of 12 children. This small group will allow the staff to gain a better insight and understanding of the individual and provide a setting in which they are more able to thrive.

Cost & How to Book 

The Woodlanders costs £40 a day (we do accept childcare vouchers or if your child has an EHCP, you can request Devon County Council to fund the session.)  To book please email hello@outdoorsgroup.co.uk
