Forest School Sessions
The Nurture Circle
Parent & Toddler Nature Play
18months to 5 years
Tuesday - Sutton Ecology Centre, Carshalton - Morning Session 10-11.30am
Friday - Oaks Park, Carshalton - Morning Session 10-11.30am
Our Play & Stay sessions give parents & children the chance to explore, discover and connect in nature. We offer a wide range of activities and play invitations set out in nature for you to engage in freely alongside your child as well as some more supervised risky play activities with climbing, fire and use of tools as key components. We hope that the experience you have with your children will re-wild your family and get you to remember the freedom you had as a child out in nature and through offering your own child that freedom of discovery, awe and wonder, taking away ideas and life skills you and your child can continue to enjoy for many years to come.

Saturday Morning Nature Club
5 years to 11 years (Reception to Year 6)
Saturday - Oaks Park, Carshalton - Morning Session 10am -12pm
These sessions give your child the opportunity to get out in the elements, reconnect with nature, re-charge and enjoy different nature and risky play activities. They are given autonomy within safe boundaries and can build their understanding of caring for the outside world and learn new skills. It’s a real must for children after a long week in school with little time to expel their energy. Nature Club provides the opportunity for them to just play with other children, following their own agendas, imaginations, and interests and learn new nature, fire and tool skills.

Woodland Wednesdays Homeschool Group
4 years to 11 years (Reception to Year 6)
Wednesdays - Oaks Park, Carshalton - Morning Session 10am - 12.30pm
These sessions gives your family the opportunity to get out in the elements, reconnect with nature, re-charge and enjoy different nature and risky play activities. They are given autonomy within safe boundaries and can build their understanding of caring for the outside world and learn new skills. Each week they can have time in the woodland to explore and play, there will be a new forest school skill to try and we will cook a community lunch over the fire to share. Children will lead the way and plan sessions together according to their interests and motivations for learning.
All our sessions run in six week blocks, term time only, across the year. If you take a place with us you will be automatically enrolled into the following six week block with a cancellation date if you can no longer attend. We recommend trying to complete a full year of Nature Club fun with us so your child can experience all the seasons nature has to offer as the awe and wonder of each site changes from day to day, week to week and month to month - every session is different and adds value to your child's discovery of self and connection with nature.
