Do we go out in all weathers?


Absolutely! The children go outside in all types of weather unless conditions are deemed hazardous by our staff. As long as they are dressed appropriately, it's never a problem. We also have indoor spaces available however, should we occasionally need them.

What if my child needs the toilet?

We ask that all children are to use the toilet before their Forest School sessions begin. If your child needs the toilet during the session we have our outdoor toilet huts on site and our staff are happy to assist your child if they require it.

Does my child need to be potty trained?

No. We have nappy changing facilities onsite.
