EYFS

Designed especially for EYFS, these sessions provide lots of opportunities for children to explore and play outdoors, get active and learn creatively.  Sessions are tailored for the age and ability of the group, and we can also adapt many of our KS1 sessions for EYFS.
 

"Really age appropriate. All children involved. Friendly, fun workshop. Thank you.”
- EYFS Forest School Taster, Cheddar Grove Primary School, 2019.


Choose from a wide variety of sessions:

   

[NEW!] Teddy Bear’s Picnic – Now in Bear Wood!

  A classic story inspires learning about woodland animals in our brand new Bear Wood exhibit!
