Welcome to Little Forest Folk Chiswick

We start the day at the Hogarth Centre. This is where we welcome children when they are dropped off in the mornings and where we enjoy lots of free play. Our little ones enjoy a hearty, nutritious breakfast to prepare them for a day of fun and physical activity in the great outdoors before getting their outdoor gear on in preparation for the real fun to begin.

Each day we will set up base at Chiswick House & Gardens. Our base is made up of cosy pop-up sleeping tents, a small nappy changing tent, a toilet tent and a hand washing station.

Activities can range from treasure hunts, climbing trees, building dens and creative play to reading stories, mark making and mathematics (counting leaves, acorns, feathers, dividing, sharing, combining) in the forest.

We enjoy our morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack out in the forest, then towards late afternoon we start to make our way back to our base at Hogarth Centre. Here we will take the time to reflect upon our day, enjoy an extra curricular class and discuss with the children what they enjoyed the most, using these discussions to help us plan our activities for the next day. On Fridays we haveWild Cooking Fridays, exploring all things food related and honing our little chef skills.
