What we'll do
Forest School inspired sessions for pre-schoolers and their adults. We run term time in rain and sun. Tickets cover an adult and one child for the term. Please only book for the child you are paying for when booking (i.e. not yourself). Siblings under 2 years are free and do not need to be booked but you can let me know in the notes. A maximum of one adult to three children (including under twos). We have a beautiful site to explore and a chance to climb, balance, build dens, crafts, a campfire snack cooked over the fire and sometimes a story. We run across the year so dress for the weather. A small campfire snack is provided but do bring extras for your child - the outdoors makes us all hungry. A hot drink in a lidded cup is also recommended for the adults.

About your mentor
Kate
Outdoor learning enthusiast, teacher, parent
I am so excited to be working with the Thursday Forest Tots group. Getting children and young people outside is my passion and forest school is such a lovely way for little ones to have to chance to explore and play outdoors. The Hill End/Wytham site is such an exceptionally beautiful setting for this too! I have worked in various outdoor roles in the last ten years. I have previously run forest school toddler groups, 1-1 SEN sessions outdoors, horticultural therapy sessions and courses in countryside skills. I currently also work as a SEN Teacher, in which I will use any excuse to take learning outside and get children active! -
Useful information
**Booking instructions** Tickets cover an adult and one child for the term. Please only book for the child you are paying for when booking (ie. not yourself). Siblings under 2 years are free and do not need to be booked but you can let me know in the notes. A maximum of one adult to three children (including under twos). ****************************************************************************** Forest Tots is at the Hill End Centre on the Eynsham Road, Oxford, OX2 9NJ Instructions on our exact location at Hill End will be given after you have booked and before the start of term. We welcome ages from 0- 5 years at Forest Tots. Whilst nature is a great space for all ages I do recommend your little one to be a confident walker to get the most from the session. However, we do welcome many younger, non walking siblings. There are toilets on site but they are quite a walk away from the FS site – either go beforehand or be prepared to use a bush! A small campfire snack is provided but do bring extras for your child - the outdoors makes us all hungry. A hot drink in a lidded cup is also recommended for the adults. Please come dressed for the weather - adults and children! Spare clothes are also a bonus if they do get wet or muddy. Fore more FAQ visit: https://foresttots.wordpress.com/
What happens at FT
Forest Tots happens in the beautiful ancient woodland of Hill End/Wytham. Not every session will look the same and will change according to the season -but generally there may be a fire, storytelling, a craft activity, bug hunting as well as a mud kitchen, den building, tree climbing, puddle splashing etc! We have an ethos of child led, free play. This won’t be a structured session with laid out “entertainment’ – we hope the children will be able to make their own play whilst the adults may mindfully observe, gently support, wander or chat to one another! Please do make sure your needs are met too and feel free to ask me for anything you may be unsure about.

Cancellation Policy
I am not able to offer refunds in general but may be able to if there is good notice.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
