YOUNG RANGERS: Outdoor After School Club
Every Thursday, during school term time, from 4pm-6pm
Young Rangers is a weekly after-school club for primary school aged children. There are no targets to meet, no curriculum, no differentiation of abilities, just learning through play and growing in social and emotional intelligence… and lots of mud. We’re passionate about getting kids back to nature, where every child can thrive. Sessions are led by experienced outdoor activity leaders, Sally and Linda.
Activities are open to all children aged 6-11 years.
£7 per child each session. Payment for each term is usually made up front at the first session.
LITTLE RANGERS: Parent & Toddler Group in the Woods
Little Rangers is a monthly forest kindergarten group for parents and toddlers. 1pm – 3pm on a Thursday. The next session will be Thursday 12th July 2018.
Here, you can let your little ones play, explore and discover in beautiful surroundings for an afternoon of activities and free play in nature. Child-led play sessions have a relaxed atmosphere about them with activities led by Sally who brings her Forest School experience to the group, ready to facilitate and guide any learning that takes place.
Activities are aimed at children aged 2-5 years but parents can bring their younger children with them also.
Cost £5 per child.
