About this Event

Set in the beautiful relaxing Secret Garden, Fishbourne, our popular Babes in the Wood forest school sessions are returning this Autumn.

Our sessions have activities based around a story or nature theme with lots of opportunities for child led play. Children may go bug hunting, make a delicious mud pie in the mud kitchen, hang out in the hammock or laugh on the rope swing. It's a lovely friendly place for children and adults to make new friends, chat by the fire and enjoy playing. Every session we light the fire together and cook. Adults also enjoy a cup of freshly brewed tea or coffee.

Forest school encourages children to follow their own interests and curiosities. This encourages a deep learning, builds confidence, resilience and self esteem.

Our experienced forest school leaders will support the childrens learning and provide opportunities for children to try new challenges like using simple tools and stream dipping. Children learn to assess and manage their own risks in a supported environment. We always end with a story and put out the fire together

What parents say about our sessions

"Love it, love it, love it! My 3 and 1 year old really enjoy Forest School (and so do I). Everyone is friendly and it feels safe, yet free range. Worth every penny, I highly recommend it. It’s helped encourage me to get the kids outside more, helped to come up with ideas to play and made us that little bit more outdoorsy 😊" Nicola July 2019

"Absolutely incredible forest school. Highly recommend." Sophie Dec 2018

Tickets include all crafts and activities, we often cook a tasty snack over the fire and provide tea, coffee. We also have water and cups, many parents bring their own childs bottle and a snack.

Sessions are run by Chichester Forest School CIC's level 3 forest school leaders who are fully qualified, insured , have outdoor first aid and food hygiene qualifications. All staff and volunteers have enhanced DBS checks.

In line with our forest school practice we aim to keep sessions relaxed and fun and encourage child led play.
