Little Forest Folk Putney Heath
Little Forest Folk Putney Heath is a fully outdoor forest nursery that immerses two to five-year-olds in nature, helping them become creative, resilient little learners.
Little Forest Folk nurseries are situated in magical sites where children’s imaginations are free to run wild. We follow the core Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum and incorporate learning in a safe and secure outdoor environment, where free play, fresh air, exposure to the natural world and physical activity are an integral part of learning.
Every day we meet our full day children at Roehampton Cricket Club on Putney Heath Common for breakfast. After a hearty and filling breakfast we don our waterproofs and head to our magical forest setting.
Activities in the forest can range from creating mud pies, treasure hunts, bark rubbing, mini beast exploration, experimenting with science, dressing up and creative role play to reading stories, mark making and mathematics in the forest. We are always on the move, balancing, running, climbing, coordinating and are always learning more about our world.
We enjoy our morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack out in the forest, then towards late afternoon we make our way back to the cricket club. Here we take time to reflect upon our day and discuss with the children what they enjoyed the most, using these discussions to help us plan our activities for the next day. We enjoy a nutritious dinner every day and on Friday mornings we have Wild Cooking Fridays, exploring all things food related and honing our little chef skills.
We can accommodate children once they have turned two and we have a cosy rest area available for those children who need time during the day to relax or catch a quick cat nap. We do however recommend to get the most out of our forest experience that children wait to join us in the forest until they have dropped their long nap or are able to manage with a shorter sleep to ensure they don’t miss out on all our forest action.
In order to keep our experience magical for children we limit the number of children attending each day to 20 children.
SESSIONS AT LITTLE FOREST FOLK PUTNEY HEATH
There are two options for attending Little Forest Folk Putney Heath, a Full Day (year around) or a Sessional Day (term time only). Full Days run 8am to 6pm (Fridays finish 3:30pm), include breakfast, lunch and dinner, whereas Sessional Days are shorter days running 9.30am to 3:30pm which includes lunch. Both include a morning and afternoon snack. We ask for a minimum commitment of at least two days per week per child and we can only enrol children once they have turned 2.
