‘Wild in the Woods’

Dernwood Children’s Woodland Club

We’re excited to be running some great Children’s woodland club groups this year with Laura  Warren.  Laura is a Forest School Practitioner with a kind and sensitive child led approach to learning. She provides a fun space for all to learn (including adults!) and develop together at their own pace. This gives young people the opportunity to build their self confidence and self reliance in a safe environment. Laura has a passion for nature and learning through exploration, observation and play. She also has particular skills with nature crafts, and healthy seasonal outdoor cooking. The sessions create a special time to spend with your family in the woods, to have fun, learn a new skill and to appreciate the wonders of nature. Or give the kids a unique experience to remember and time for them to be ‘wild in the woods’!
