Welcome to Little Forest Folk Putney Heath

每天我们满足我们在Roehamp一整天的孩子ton Cricket Club on Putney Heath Common for breakfast. After a hearty and filling breakfast we don our waterproofs and head to our magical forest setting.

Activities in the forest can range from creating mud pies, treasure hunts, bark rubbing, mini beast exploration, experimenting with science, dressing up and creative role play to reading stories, mark making and mathematics in the forest. We are always on the move, balancing, running, climbing, coordinating and are always learning more about our world.

We enjoy our morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack out in the forest, then towards late afternoon we make our way back to the cricket club. Here we take time to reflect upon our day and discuss with the children what they enjoyed the most, using these discussions to help us plan our activities for the next day. We enjoy a nutritious dinner every day and on Friday mornings we haveWild Cooking Fridays, exploring all things food related and honing our little chef skills.

We take children once they have turned two and we have a cosy rest area available for those children who need time during the day to relax or catch a quick cat nap. We do however recommend to get the most out of our forest experience that children wait to join us in the forest until they have dropped their long nap or are able to manage with a shorter sleep to ensure they don’t miss out on all our forest action.

In order to keep our experience magical for children we limit the number of children attending each day to 20 children.

The wild world is becoming so remote to children that they miss out – and an interest in the natural world doesn’t grow as it should. Nobody is going to protect the natural world unless they understand it
