Benefits of learning nature's lifecycles in the outdoors
Learning the theory about lifecycles has it place, but it can't beat real hands-on experiences of nature. Pre-school children learning in the real world. Our very friendly ewe, "Toffee" has given birth to a boy, called "Pickle" and a girl "Lilly" - names chosen by our kindergarten children.
Outdoor Woodland Birthday Parties in Box, Wiltshire - near Bath
We have rested the woodland for the winter and we have now decided to release dates for birthday parties for Spring 2017 onwards. So whether it is a nerf gun fight, capture the flag, man hunt, feeding our farm animals (pigs, sheep, chickens and ducks), going on a bear hunt or playing in our mud kitchen we are looking forward to an exciting Spring and Summer! We look forward to seeing you in the woods for lots of fun!
We know it's sometimes cold and wet (...although it is in fact beautiful sunshine today!) so we thought we would make it more appealing to get your Forest School Level 3 qualification this winter.
For our February 2017 Forest School Level 3 Ofqual accredited course we are offering £200 off the normal price of £795 - i.e. you can get qualified for only £595! Of course you will still need to complete the coursework requirements!
There are limited spaces so if you are interested please don't take too long to decide and remember to use the Promotion Code: WINTER
Box, Corsham (Wiltshire)
Our Toddler group in Box, Corsham (Wiltshire) - between Bath and Chippenham is now back on Friday mornings from 9.30am to 11.00am.
We want to enable all the children to have lots of freedom from structure with lots of positive experiences - enabling them to grow in independence and confidence - in a natural outdoor environment. Activities are deliberately varied and a mix between child-led and adult-initiated. Typical activities include feeding farm animals, stories around the camp fire, woodland activities, playing in the mud kitchen, digging, running, games, den building, playing with toys and dumper trucks. All with a high chance of getting mucky!
Woodland Adventurers Outdoor Kindergarten in Box, Corsham has been awarded the highest level (Level 5) for the Food Standards Agency Food Hygiene Rating. This highest level achievement takes into account the outdoor nature of our setting including visiting and feeding our farm animals.
