Every day we meet our full day children at Heatham House in Twickenham for breakfast. We greet our friends, enjoy a lovely breakfast and a play sparked by curiosity and exploration before getting ready for our forest adventures.
Once we are dressed up in our wellies and waterproofs it’s a short walk into our magical woodland garden area, where children have free rein to explore, play and have unbounded adventures in a natural wild setting.
Our play is child-led and play-based. Children's imaginations are the only barrier to a day at Little Forest Folk and they are encouraged to run, imagine, create and reflect. We use our environment as our third teacher with resources being primarily natural materials which create provocations to stimulate highly engaged play through fascination, awe and wonder. 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.
我们的森林站点大约是半英亩consists of a variety of vegetations and areas to engage the children’s imaginations. We additionally have a cosy sleeping tent for children still needing a rest in the middle of the day and of course our all important fire circle where not only can we cook but often the most amazing conversations happen.
