Sussex Wildlife Trust has been flooded with enquiries since launching their pre-school woodland experience with a difference!
Under-fives and their carers are encouraged to get involved in outdoor fun and games designed to explore the wonderful sights and sounds of the natural world.
Based on our popular Forest School programme, three to five year-olds will learn basic bushcraft skills, gather around a fire circle for storytelling and to toast marshmallows, and enjoy a sing-song and games with a woodland theme. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Our Nature Tots Officer said: “By having fun and exploring the woodland children will learn to become confident in the outdoors and perhaps spark a life-long love of the natural world. Activities are linked to the seven stages of development to stimulate independent learning and team working - all of which will help with problem solving, physical development, creativity, and will boost communication skills.’
Why not come along between 10am-12noon on Wednesday 11 September and the five following Wednesdays until 16 October. Cost per child for the six weeks of Nature Tots is: Sussex Wildlife Trust members £40, non members £45. Please dress for the weather, we’ll go outside rain or shine.
Places are limited and booking is essential. For further information and online booking please visit: www.sussexwildlifetrust.org.uk/naturetots or call Katie Parker on 01273 492630 for further details.
