Alongside our Beach School provision, we also offer Forest School sessions to enrich our children’s experiences. The children use their imaginations and build dens and traps and observe the natural habitat. They explore the woodland together and they grow in confidence and self-esteem as they learn how to climb and negotiate natural obstacles safely and with increasing skill and coordination.
Younger children benefit from similar, age-appropriate, experiences in our extensive nursery gardens. These opportunities enable our children to be inspired by nature and observe seasonal and environmental change within the world around them.
Our Edible Garden, where children grow, cultivate and harvest their own fruits and vegetables, was established after one three-year-old child asked where chips come from… Our children now plant seeds in the greenhouse, compost in our bins, harvest from our raised beds and enjoy sampling the produce they grow in our healthy range of meals and snacks.
