We are very excited to announce we will be opening our Wandsworth Little Forest Folk this year. We’d love to invite you to our first Open Day on Friday 26th February 2016 to tell you all about it.
From 10am to 4pm our fabulous Wandsworth team will be available at the Naturescope centre on the common (next door to the Skylark cafe, just off Dorlcote Road) to tell you more about Little Forest Folk.
Our team of staff, managed by the energetic Lil Hansen along with our founder Leanna Barrett will look forward to meeting with all of our potential new families. Please come along to learn more about our concept, have a tour of our facilities, view our equipment and menus, meet our special team and understand why your children will utterly love to join us in our adventures.
Feel free to pop along at any time to join us as we will be there all day, however we will be holding information sessions at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm, 2.30pm & 3.30pm. To guarantee a place at an information session, you are welcome to book your family in, however we will do our best on the day to accommodate as many drop in families as we can fit into the centre.
On the day we shall be using the Naturescope garden area to give you a taste of the unique approach to play and learning that we offer in our predominantly forest based setting. You will have a chance to take a look at our equipment, chat to our staff about our concept and give your children a sense of how much fun we have at Little Forest Folk!

We look forward to seeing you then.
Little Forest Folk
This week at Barnes we had our Stay and Play week which is such a lovely opportunity for parents to join their children for some forest fun! We all spent our mornings; playing, reading, climbing, building, singing and even dancing around. We could see the smiles on the faces of parents as they enjoyed their time immersed in nature too.
This week we have enjoyed having our parents in the forest for Stay and Play. We read stories, ran away from dinosaurs chasing us, enjoyed some adventure walks and got delightfully muddy in the forest.
There has been such excitement throughout the forest this week with the arrival of mums, dads, grandparents, brothers and sisters, all of whom have been joining us for lots of autumnal fun during our Stay and Play week.
We’ve had such a lovely week in the forest, made especially exciting by the addition of some mums and dads. We hope you had as much fun in the forest as your little ones do!
In the small hours of an autumnal morning, some rain must have visited the forest, leaving behind clues of its presence in the form of puddles. These intrigued a group of children as they walked into the forest.
The forest this week has been greeted with chilly mornings that have suddenly bloomed into warm, sunny days at a moments notice.
What a mighty week of weather we have had in the forest. With Wednesday being the hottest day in October for 7 years, we have been feeling very grateful to enjoy the last moments of sunshine!
The Autumn has been very evident this week in the forest with leaves tumbling from the trees in a multitude of rainbow colours.
This week has really thrown us into an autumnal feeling with so many beautiful changes in the colours we are finding in the forest. The wind has picked up to blow the fallen leaves around and the squirrels are busy all around us gathering all the sweet chestnuts.
This week the children have shown a remarkable ability to review, reflect and persevere. They have used trial and error, teamwork and a wonderful imagination to create and make.
