Spend time in the magical woodland with your toddler or pre-schooler discovering the natural world!
Kids in the Woods is our fortnightly toddler/pre-school aged group designed to give you and your child the opportunity to get together for outdoor woodland experience and learning in the magical setting of Leigh Woods. Sessions run during term time on alternate weeks.
Each session has a differently themed woodland activity, something special to do or make together and we love to finish with a story round the fire circle. At this time we are not permitted to provide you with a drink and a biscuit but you are encouraged to bring your own hot drink and snacks with you to enjoy. This term’s themes: ‘Things that go bump in the night!’; ‘Autumn minibeasts’; ‘Getting ready for winter’; ‘Christmas!’
The benefits of outdoor play and learning have been well documented. Much recent research has highlighted how a connection with the natural world helps adults and children alike to feel better, work better and sleep better!*
The woodland is a great place to engage with the natural world and learn about our place in it. A cool refuge in summer, a kaleidoscope of colours of autumn, crisp cold winter sunshine, bright greens of spring – all make the woods a wonderful place to be and learn!
