Get your toddler or pre-schooler outdoors to discover the natural world!
Whatever the weather, the benefits of outdoor play 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 the changing seasons. A cool refuge in summer, a kaleidoscope of colours of autumn, crisp cold winter sunshine, bright greens of spring – all make the woods a good place to be, whatever the weather!
Kids in the Woods is our fortnightly toddler/pre-school group designed to give you and your child(ren) the opportunity to get together for outdoor play and learning in the magical setting of Leigh Woods. Sessions run during term time only, normally on alternate weeks. Each week there is a different themed activity in the woodland, something to do or make (to take home) back at the Green Barn, a drink and a story around the fire circle.
“We are really enjoying our time in the woods!” HE, Bristol
