An immersive forest adventure

‘Woodland Explorers’ are Forest School sessions for children aged 1-4 years on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

Come and delve into our beautiful woods, explore our mud kitchen, meet some worms in our digging bed, and enjoy some stories around the fire! Our sessions encourage free-flow, child-initiated exploration in our private forest, embellished with a different craft activity and campfire snack every week.

What people are saying…

Explore at their own pace!

“I think the set up is fab and covers a wide age range. My son enjoys exploring the various sections in his own way, and he responds really well to the free-play aspect that they can explore at their own pace.”

Making mud cakes and singing!

“I wanted to say a huge thank you for letting us attend. We had such a wonderful time and both Harry and Maisie were talking about the campfire, making mud cakes and singing 5 Little Speckled Frogs all day! We hope we can attend again!”

There’s so much you’re doing well.

“I really can’t think of anything you can do to improve but there’s so much you’re doing well. It was so wonderful to see the children exploring the clay. I love how open-ended everything is.”

Can’t wait to come back!!

“We thought it was so so brilliant and I can’t wait to come back and do it again! It was so calming and thoughtfully put out.”

Cosy and full of adventure!

“I was really impressed with the set up. Although I have been a regular visitor to Willsbridge Mill for years, I didn’t even know that this section of the wood existed! It has a very ‘secret club’ feel about it – cosy and full of adventure!”

My younger one was mesmerised by being in the Forest.

“My child adored the session!!! We loved the child-lead, exploratory nature of the activities and the staff were incredibly helpful, friendly and supportive. It was great for a mother of two as my younger one was mesmerised by being in the Forest whilst the older one was engaged in activities encouraged by the leaders. We loved being around the fire and the creative part of the session of singing and story time. We cannot wait to come back next week!”
