We are offering excellent, well planned, stimulating, fun and learning experiences for children.
- nature knowledge
- creative expression, movement, stories, poetry & drawing
- greenwood working & craft skills
- cooking, fires, food & foraging
- wild first aid & developing plant knowledge
There are plenty of opportunities to learn throughout the day, about the plants, trees, birds, and insects around us. We tie nature knowledge into all the games and activities and give time in each session for children’s natural inquisitiveness to grow.
There will be free time and choices of activity. Tutors are skilled in using green wood working tools, forest schooling, community arts, theatre and play, out door and paediatric first aid . There is indoor space should it rain as well as covered out door space, where we can still cook on an open fire.
for children 6-12 yr old
(if children are a bit younger and have previously visited Earth play forest school before and are happy to be left then please do come for the day)
if you want to give your child these opportunities and can’t afford this price please ask for a subsidised place. We want children to be able to come here and play.
We provide engaging activities to direct the child’s energy, learning and skill development while also giving choice and flexibility for children’s differing needs. We like the flow learning model which means if you have fun and let off steam you are more open to concentrate on listening to bird calls, looking for birds, animal tracks, leaf shapes, seeds or gathering items for making.
We want to keep the children safe in an environment where they will engage in some risky activities. We do a benefits and risk assessment for all our activities. If you want to view our polices which cover every eventuality you can download them or view them at the college Please go to our Policies and Forms page to download our policy documents and consent forms.
The nature ranger sessions are currently subsidised by the community fund, thank you so much to them.
The garden, building and volunteer activity that support the Forest garden are supported by the Eco shop in Cardigan. Thanks to them for making this wonderful opportunity available for children. To find out more about the Eco shop and the work of Naturewise see: www.naturewise.org.uk
We will be offering other whole days in the woods in Cilgerran, during holiday times. The days rus generally from 10-3 making lunch on the fire will be a part of the days activities and we will provide lunch. As always we will play games that help us all feel relaxed with each other by having fun and letting off steam.
