We are delighted to have launched somebrand new workshops in 2022.The workshop will be all about Learning, Playing and Exploring in the Natural World and to inspire those wanting to delve further into nature-based learning adventures. A fantastic opportunity if you are wanting to learn more about outdoor education or if you are a parent wanting to learn more ideas to do with little ones outdoors!

"Amazing CPD day on 16th May. Ofsted say they are outstanding and I would totally agree. In fact if there was a grade above outstanding Little Forest Folk would achieve it. They are not a forest school, they are not an eco classroom, they are simply who they say they are Little Forest Folk." - (May 2018)

"I just wanted to say thank you again for such inspiring day. It gave me so much hope!!! as a teacher, as a mother and as a human being!" - (May 2018)

"I want to thank Little Forest Folk for the amazing experience I had! My favourite part was going to the Wimbledon site and seeing the children in action! I liked that we were able to talk to the children and practitioners. The adults were amazing and were a great help if had any questions." - (May 2018)
