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!

Little Forest Folk
As the children continue to progress with their amazing tree climbing, the practitioners always looking to present new challenges for the children; this week we have been focusing on using the zip line.
On Monday we split into two groups at Kew and headed off in two different directions. One group wanted to do some fishing, so they headed to the lake behind Kew House and hunted for the perfect sticks to turn into fishing rods.
The colours of the forest this week have been incredibly vibrant with sharp frosty mornings. We have been observing how the natural world is making these beautiful transformations.
Well, what a lovely jubbley week we have had! The air has definitely gotten a lot crisper and we have certainly been eyeing up some cracking homemade knitwear in the forest!
From chilly to balmy, it’s been a complete mix of temperatures in the forest this week. The children have been in and out of their new winter jackets and hi-vis vests but this is all great skill development for dressing!
The forest this week has been a marvellous mix of storytelling, animal investigation and pirates!
The children have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the stories read and told by adults early on in the week.
The weather has definitely taken a turn towards chilly this week. Wrapped up with a lot more layers and wearing our new fleece lined waterproofs we have talked a lot about keeping warm and putting our hats and gloves on when we get cold.
It’s been another exciting week in the forest full of new discoveries and experiences.
Earlier in the week we had some visitors to Fulham Palace Gardens who came to check that the forest was healthy and eventually had to cut down a couple of old trees.
A number of our LFF children had a wonderful time at the Paradise Co-op Bonfire party on the weekend, so much so that when they arrived on Monday morning they were eager to recreate the magical night!
What a muddy, messy week it’s been in Fishpond Woods. With more mole hills than ever giving the best digging terrain, the children have been getting to grips with the worm-rich soil and imagining all sorts of play with it.
