Wild in the Woods - Forest School for the under 5's (six sessions)

Forest school for under 5’s at Rainham Marshes Nature Reserve

Join us for a half term of nature exploration and adventure in our Woodland Discovery Zone.

Forest school aims to inspire children through nature, building their confidence and self esteem and encouraging individual growth. At these sessions, young children from 18 months to 5 years, with their carer, can learn through play at their own pace. Through wildlife inspired arts and crafts, building, climbing, bug hunting or simply experiencing the tranquillity and calm of their natural surroundings, children will be supported on their individual learning journey by our experienced outdoor educators.

Suitable for any child who can walk confidently (guide age 18 months to 5 years). One parent or carer can accompany their child. There is no charge for parent/carer or for accompanying younger siblings up to 18 months.
