Little Squirrels Forest School for toddlers, preschool children and parents at Thames Young Mariners

What to expect

Come and join us at Thames Young Mariners to explore what nature has to offer. Discover and play in our woods while building your child's confidence and providing them with a sense of adventure.

Forest Schools enables children to develop and learn the boundaries of behaviour, both physical and social, as well as establish and grow in confidence, self esteem and motivation. This is encouraged through activities such as:

  • Fire lighting
  • Den building
  • Building and creating objects
  • Art work
