Description

I have decided to cancel these sessions as the turn out has not been as expected. Thank you so much to everyone that came along and played. Hopefully I'll see you at Highway Farm or The Small Wood.

Keep it natural ;)

Stay and play - toddlers to pre-school

I'm a Playworker, Forest School leader and trainer and have worked in early years for 30 years. I believe children should have the opportunity to play outside exploring their local environment, this connects them to the landscape and community.

Meet on The Green (opposite the cafe on the sand) and see which way we wander, we may use the local footpaths, stroll on the beach or head for the park. We will always go at the pace of our slowest toddler and pitch up somewhere for some collaborative fun.

This 1 1/4 hr session will be based around my Forest School style which is enabling like minded families to come together, to explore and experiment with what we find. Sticks, stones, petals and pebbles are called natural loose parts and these are a fantastic open ended resource for children to play with. Children learn so much from freely chosen play and from being able to follow their own interests. I sometimes think that you really can see the cogs in their brains clicking round embedding all of that learning! I like to enable curiosity.

Depending on the seasons, weather and tides we'll be finding treasures, making streams, den building, watching the Fulmars, rockpooling, looking at wind direction and shadows, maybe floating things on the stream and generally having some fun! We'll always finish sessions with some bubbles :)

What learning will take place?

  • Learning about weather
  • Exploring local wildlife
  • Communication
  • Local geography
  • Problem Solving
  • Risk managment
  • Creativity

What do I need to bring?

  • Dress for the weather
  • Wellies or sandals
  • A drink
  • Bucket & spade - optional, but handy for collecting things

No charge for babes in arms.

Please check your email before leaving if the weather is a bit lively! If the session does not run you will be offered a place the following week or a full refund. I will make any 'weather decisions' before 9.30am.

Sessions will only run with four or more families. Ticket sales end at 9.45am.
