Woodland Holiday Club 2022/2023

The holiday club is available to our current/previous registered children and siblings up to age 7 years. The sessions will run be by the pre-school staff during the October, Easter, Whit and summer holidays for a maximum of 7 weeks. The sessions are run from our woodland site, with access to the pre-school facilities.

The sessions will be a reflection of our ethos in pre-school and also support the ideas that inform forest schools. Each day children will be learning about fire & woodland safety, building fires, managing appropriate risks, experiencing the natural world and taking part in fun engaging woodland themed activities.  Places will be offered on a first come first serve basis. Invoices will need to be paid in advance of the session, the current terms and conditions of the pre-school will apply to the holiday club.
