Youth Options Forest School - Home Educators (5 - 11 year olds)

Coronavirus status:

Forest School sessions for those who educate their children at home. Like our Twiglets groups, these are 2 hour sessions each week on the same day.

The idea behind Forest School is for children to improve their confidence, language, social skills and self-esteem through regular, fun activities in the outdoor environment.

All the time will be spent outside and there will be opportunities to take part in building dens, campfire cookery, Kelly Kettles, woodworking, games, stories, seasonal activities and much more.
