Little Forest Folk Wandsworth Open Day
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!
To book in for any of the information sessions or to enquire about our waiting list, please use our online form
We look forward to seeing you then.
Little Forest Folk
This week the children have been exploring the forest in new ways. The warm sunshine has finally shown itself again and the signs of spring are just beginning to appear.
This week in the forest the children have been very creative making their own small world spaces using natural resources.
When you have so many worms what do you need? A worm house of course! This week children built houses for worms from sticks, using mud kitchen bowls as the roof and populated their houses with more worms than you could ever imagine.
We have been bathed in lovely warm pre-spring sunshine this week and there has been a massive increase in building and construction.
Could it be that Spring has sprung? Probably not, but with the Hazel trees adorning their catkins, Daffodil shoots rising up from the earth and the sun bringing gloriously warm and bright days, it has certainly felt like it.
This week in the forest the children have been enjoying much milder weather and the return of some glorious mud!
Snow, snow glorious snow! On Friday morning, we arrived at Kew to find patches of snow still covering the gardens.
In contrast to last week’s polar blast, this week in the forest has felt almost spring-like, with some warm winter sunshine and slightly lighter mornings and evenings.
A touch of magic has descended on Wimbledon Common this week, with interests turning to creating fairies and fairy houses made from willow.
There is something very special about the spontaneous magic that happens in Little Forest Folk when children encounter expressive art and design resources that have been presented in a way that allows them to tinker and create whatever they like.
