We run sessions grouped loosely in-line with National Curriculum Key Stages & age groups. Don’t worry if you have kids in more than one Key Stage group; they’re more than welcome to attend as well, but the focus of the session will be for those in the indicated age group. You will however need to purchase a place for any additional children who want/need to attend that days session.
Our forest school sessions run in parallel with school dates in the Cheshire East Council area & run throughout the calendar year (ie Autumn, Spring & Summer terms).
We accept a maximum of 8 kids per session as maintaining a small group size is key to the forest school ethos. So please make sure that you book your places early to avoid disappointment.
