A summary

This is an opportunity for your child to have the time to play and explore the natural world and make new friends. Set the beautiful ancient woodland of Lymley woods which also has exciting rope bridges, cargo nets, swings, a treehouse, a nature observation look out, a mud kitchen, camp kitchen, a meadow, a picnic area and a shelter with a fire pit. Your child will observe, experience and learn about the seasonal changes of these spectacular woods while having fun. Through the physical movement opportunities of the woodland and the adventure play areas, your child’s physical strength, balance and coordination will develop. There will be optional craft and bushcraft activities such as whittling, fire building and making seasonal creatures with wool and clay to participate in. There will be time to relax and appreciate nature, whilst also experiencing the joy, beauty, wonder and magic that our natural environment provides.

Lorna Hendley·A teacher & mum who knows how to have fun!
Lorna Hendley: I originally worked as a learning support assistant in mainstream school and found myself drawn to younger children. I fell in love with the Waldorf kindergarten from the moment I walked through the Steiner Kindergarten door. I completed my Waldorf early years teacher training alongside working as an assistant at Michael Hall Steiner school. I was fortunate to have several happy years there teaching before starting my own family. I am now a busy home maker and mother to three young children. I am a qualified Forest school leader and have lead a Waldorf inspired outdoor parent and child groups. I have two boys who are at primary school and I want them to experience the benefits of being in the same woodland on a weekly basis. This is for them to see and learn about the seasons and increase their wonder and magic in their lives. While having fun with friends and gaining strength, balance, coordination and new skills. Melaine Parr: Mel is the director and founder of Lymley Wood. Mel is a qualified Youth Worker, with degrees in Environmental Science and Youth Community Work. Mel has great experience working with children and teenagers from disadvantage backgrounds. Mel is passionate about getting children to fully experience the magic of the Lymley Wood. Mel understands what parents and children need and loves to see how being in nature transforms positively in their lives. It is both our aims to reconnect families with nature, to help foster a nature connection whilst having fun and creating magic and wonder for both the child and the parent.

Important information for patents

NB: From my experience children leave school starving so please ensure your child has a good sized snack before arriving or has a snack box with them. It is undecided whether we can incorporate a meal in the woods; this is something we could aim towards if it was something all wanted. Please ensure the children are dressed appropriately and warmly and in waterproofs if raining or at least have them to change into.

Learning aims

To reconnect families with nature.
