Spend time in the magical woodland at Leigh Woods with your toddler or pre-schooler discovering the natural world!
“The leaders are great and make the sessions really engaging for the children.” Liz – autumn/winter 2020
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 learning and woodland experience in the magical setting of Leigh Woods. Sessions run during term time on alternate weeks.
Each session has an educationally themed woodland activity, something special to do or make together and we love to finish with a story and a hot drink around the fire circle. This term’s themes include: ‘Magical winter woodland’; ‘Birds of a feather?’; ‘Eggs and nests’; ‘Trees in springtime!’
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 within 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!
“We love that it is led by someone – I’ve been to other sessions in other places and there is no structure. Lots of effort had gone into each session and you could really see the results.” Paul Read – winter 2020
“The sessions are educational and fun – I think the pace of different activities is great.” Jennifer – autumn/winter 2020
