Forest School Age 1-5

Outdoor toddler sessions Manchester in Trafford, Manchester and Cheshire.

Join us for a 6 week course of 1 hour sessions for toddlers to under 5s on Tuesday & Fridays 10 – 11am at Trafford Ecology Park.

Get creative with mud, hunting for bears, imaginative play with elves and fairies, making music in the forest and getting to grips with puddles, creepy crawlies and the great outdoors.

Learning through play in the great outdoors helps to build confidence and self-esteem so that your little one can reach their full potential as they make challenging choices while we control their safety.

Our outdoor toddler sessions Manchester will benefit your little one emotionally, intellectually and physically from time spent in the woods as they learn about nettles, brambles and other woodland characteristics so that they can learn how to manage risk and understand safety.

Fun and educational – perfect for mums and dads who want their little ones to grow in confidence and learn to take risks safely.

Parents and children all need to wear appropriate clothing for the weather and include wet weather gear (all in one rain coat or jacket and trousers, plus an extra set of dry clothes for going home in just in case) for your little one in your kit, including wellies – there is no additional shelter and we don’t stop for rain! Please also pack a drink and a light snack.

DID YOU KNOW? Many early walkers will only experience carpet or concrete beneath their feet until they are much older, learning how to deal with uneven ground or sand increases their physical competence and intellectual understanding of risk and consequence.

Costs are £6 per session. Courses run consecutively for six or seven weeks (not including any public holidays) and you can join at any time if spaces are available. Booking in advance is essential. Terms of booking.
