5 session Accompanied Forest School Programme for Carers & Toddlers

  • Ended
  • Loewen Road


Please note that Monday 11th July is a public holiday with no session. Our Accompanied Summer Forest School programme for children from 18 months old up until their 4th birthday is designed to develop resilience, confidence, creativity and independence as well as provide all of the well-being benefits of spending plenty of active time outdoors with someone special and new friends. Young children are reassured by the presence of their carer which allows them to feel confident to play and explore independently. Children benefit through our carefully designed provocations inspired by play schemas, nature, culture and stories. During our time together the children and adults connect with the natural world and develop a curiosity about nature which will last a lifetime. Exposure to nature in the early years is crucial to fostering the next generation of caretakers for our planet. Our Accompanied Summer Forest School Programme will take place in our purposefully designed Nature Space in Dempsey.
