What is Playgroup?

Playgroup is an outdoor playgroup for accompanied children, recommended age 2 – 5yrs. Our playgroups provide an unforgettable outdoor adventure for children and their families in a safe outdoor environment.

Playing outdoors is vital for helping children practise their physical abilities and develop resilience in a safe and risk assessed environment.

Running, jumping, skipping and playing strengthens little muscles, but can also help with gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination and overall health and wellbeing.

 

Providers have trained with us, are DBS checked and hold a current first aid certificate to ensure quality and safety.

What about parents and carers?

As parents we try to juggle a million things with never-ending chores whilst trying to keep our children entertained and happy. We understand how important it is to have a break from our busy schedules to make lasting memories together.

Playgroups are a great way to meet like-minded people and learn new skills with your child. We love parents to join in with our activities whilst enjoying a cuppa in a relaxed woodland environment. Tiny siblings are very welcome to experience Forest School with their big brothers or sisters or have a little snooze surrounded by beautiful trees and fresh air!
