We are happy to offer a school holiday club running from 8 am - 6 pm during all school holidays and inset days too ( we also have shorter sessions and earlier starts. Prices are on our info page).
We are often asked if we can take younger siblings and the answer is yes if we have availability, please ask!
We have loads of activities on offer, we are not stuck indoors, we are outside learning and having so much fun!
Arts and crafts, cooking, board games, man hunt, mud play, getting involved with the care of our extensive animal collection of over 60 pets (including furries, feathers and reptiles) and, of course, our Forest School activities which include fire building and cooking, zip wire, den building, tree climbing, nature hunts, whittling, sawing, learning to use the bill hook and hand drill, mud play, clay play, nature/gruffalo hunts...to name but a few!
Our care of your child does not have to stop when your child reaches school age. We continue to care for your children right up until they leave us for their next school. Some children have been with us for over a decade.
We are close to Pennthorpe Independent School and Rudgwick Primary School and help support families with offering the extra wrap around care that they might need for their children. Whether this might be before or after school care or school holiday care from the kindergarten children upwards. Pennthorpe School is directly opposite our setting.
Before and after school care is currently held on our premises in Rudgwick. Wednesday and Friday afternoons we collect the school children in our 17 seater minibus and take them to the woodland where we will also eat our tea.
Mondays we hold a cookery club, Tuesdays we have yoga and Thursdays we hold meditation classes in our 17 square metre "hobbit" cabin.
You can also use us if your child did not come here for their pre prep years. We are very flexible in what we can help you with, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

As we spend most of our time in the woodland, it is advisable to try calling the mobile first.
