Earthwise are bringing two new regular groups to Field 725 starting at the end of April.
Little Wild Ones
The Earthwise Forest School group for babies and toddlers starts this month at Field 725. The group welcomes small children up to 2 years of age accompanied by a parent / carer. It runs on Wednesdays, 9.15am-10.15pm in term-time.
Little Wild Ones Forest School is as much for the parents as it is for the children. It is a space for parents to come and unwind outdoors and connect with other parents around the hearth. We will have craft items available for parents to dip into as you wish and of course plenty for the little ones to explore too! These sessions are entirely free-flow, giving children the opportunity to get stuck in with whatever takes their interest – whether it is getting messy in the mud kitchen, cuddling up to swing in the hammocks or exploring mini-beasts under logs – learning is often richest during self-directed play. At the end of the session all gather to sing nature-inspired songs.
Sessions are £9 for the first child and £2 for additional children

The Earthwise Forest School group for children aged 2 – 5 years with an accompanying parent/ carer in our wild woods in Wanstrow. It
Spending time in nature from an early age is considered to have a whole host of physical and cognitive benefits as well as helping shape life-long positive environmental attitudes. The ever-changing surroundings that the natural world provides us with means that there is always something new for children to explore and during this process they inevitably become more connected with nature and how it changes through the seasons.
In line with the forest school ethos, we follow the interests of the children and plan future activities based on our observations. As such, Forest School is a long-term process and we ask participants to commit to a half-a-term block in advance. If it is your first time joining us you can book a trial session before committing.
Sessions work out at £10 per session for the first child and £3 for additional children. Pre-walking baby siblings are free.

Both groups are held in our beautiful private woodland at Field 725 in Wanstrow, near Frome.
