Welcome to Little Forest Folk Fulham
Every day we meet our full day children at Rocks Lane Tennis Pavilion in Bishops Park for breakfast. We then take a short walk to Fulham Palace Gardens where we meet our sessional children. We enter the palace garden gates to a world of magical nature exploration opportunity.
Activities can range from treasure hunts, bark rubbing, mini beast exploration, dressing up and creative role play to reading stories, mark making and mathematics in the forest. We are always on the move, balancing, running, coordinating and are always learning more about our world.
We enjoy our morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack out in the forest, then towards late afternoon we make our short walk back to Rocks Lane Tennis Pavilion. Here we take time to reflect upon our day and discuss with the children what they enjoyed the most, using these discussions to help us plan our activities for the next day. We enjoy a nutritious dinner every day and once a week we even cook our own meal. Our Friday adventurers end the week by enjoying tennis lessons with a Rock's Lane Tennis coach in the late afternoons!
We take children once they have turned two and although we do have a cosy rest area available for those children who need time during the day to relax or catch a quick cat nap, we can’t accommodate those children who are napping for over an hour each day. We recommend that children join us in the forest at Fulham when they have either reduced their nap time or dropped their daytime nap altogether.

We offer 30 hours of funded childcare to eligible families. Working parents of 3 and 4 year olds are able to obtain an additional 15 hours of funded childcare provided that they meet certain eligibility criteria. These hours will be provided from April 2018.
