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, and the winter is no exception. Just remember to wrap up warm…!
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, 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 hot drink and a story around the fire.
