Little Forest Folk Wandsworth

We are extremely fortunate at Little Forest Folk Wandsworth to have two forest spaces to visit to get a real variety in our play and learning.

On Mondays and Fridays our children spend their days in the Paradise Co-op Urban Farm. We will have sole use of this fenced site on these days and will be delighted to enjoy pond dipping, gardening and growing our own plants and vegetables. Paradise Co-op has cosy hiding spaces amongst the trees and we will be able to cook over our campfire whilst at this site as well as examining all of the fabulous minibeasts and flora and fauna. We are really looking forward to lots of creative play on this site.

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays our children spend their days in the wilds of Wimbledon Common. This will be an altogether different experience and will focus on exploration, adventure, minibeasts, freedom to roam.....and we imagine lots of climbing fun will be had!

From September our Wandsworth setting will be open for full days from 8am-6pm. Our indoor premises from which we will run our Little Forest Folk Wandsworth full days is the Magdalen Road Bowling Club. Our children will enjoy breakfast and dinner as well as some free play and maybe even some barefoot bowling at our lovely indoor premises before on Mondays and Fridays being walked across to the Paradise Co-op or Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays taking a drive in our minibus down to Wimbledon Common for some forest fun.

We enjoy a morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack out in the forest as well as making sure we drink lots to keep our busy little bodies fuelled and hydrated for our very active days. Our afternoon snack time is not only a wonderfully social time for us as all meal times but is also a chance to reflect with our children upon our day. We discuss what the children have enjoyed, what they have learned and use these discussions to help us plan our activities and resourcing for the next day.

On Mondays and Fridays, we do have the ability to accommodate 1-2 hour sleepers, for Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays we hope to be more adventurous and nomadic so will simply provide rest and relaxation areas.
