A summary

At 'Little Woodies' sessions are semi-structured with opportunities for children to develop their understanding of how to keep safe, their knowledge of the woodland environment and their skills in making things from natural resources. Sometimes we play games together and there is always time for free play and exploration. Each week there will be a focused activity for children to do if they want to. These will include natural arts and crafts, campfires and outdoor cooking. You can either book for the full term or book and pay weekly. Please note that there is a small booking fee payable in addition to the advertised ticket price.

About Little Woodies

* The sessions will take place at Charlotte’s Wood in Wilby. The address is Sundial Cottage, London City Road, Wilby, IP21 5LT. There is limited parking at the venue so if possible, please park at Wilby Coronation Hall, on London City Road (IP21 5LE) and then walk 400m up London City Road (away from the village). We are on the left, just past ‘The Shingles’. There is a pair of mirrors opposite the entrance. * The sessions will have a flexible start from 10am. I will meet you and your child at the entrance to the woods. * Sessions start with a walk around the woodland - usually with something to find or spot. We then meet at 'Base Camp' for our welcome song and an introduction to activities. We finish with snack and story at our camp fire. * If you are unable to attend a session, please cancel using Eequ. Although I cannot provide a refund, I appreciate the notice so that I do not wait for you and hold up the session. Likewise, if you are going to be late, you can find my mobi...

About Charlotte's Wood

Charlotte's Wood is a place where people can connect with nature. It is a tranquil, privately owned woodland in the heart of rural East Anglia - large enough to lose yourself in but not large enough to get lost in! The woodland has a path running around the perimeter that makes it accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Next to Charlotte's Wood are two luxury holiday lodges and a cosy log cabin sits on the woodland edge. The cabin is used as a venue for meetings and training and as a meeting point and shelter during woodland activities. It can also be hired as a place to stay. There is a toilet in the cabin at the entrance to the woodland and a compost loo in the woodland that is used during sessions. At the woodland Charlotte facilitates various activities and events for adults and children throughout the year. The overarching aims of these are to provide meaningful nature connection experiences for all in order to promote physical and emotional wellbeing, to bring people to...
