What people say about us

“This group is AMAZING!!! Claire and Laura who run it are absolutely lovely and so so great with the kiddies. I come along with my nearly 3 year old boy and 3 month old baby girl and they will do anything to help (toddler tantrums, holding baby etc. )

It’s so good to be able to be outdoors with both of them but feel safe in what feels like a confined space. Each week is a different theme and so much thought and preparation goes into each activity station. My little boy likes hunting for the snake each week, running and jumping on the logs, exploring underfoot and there is a sheltered canopied area to sit and have a hot drink and whatever is being toasted on the open fire that week. Claire also makes great cake 

It is in an absolutely beautiful setting what my little boy described when walking down to it ‘as a circus’. It has such a magical feel and I would not hesitate to recommend it here.”

“I love taking Robyn (15 months) to Woodland Nurture. Claire and Laura are fabulous, there are always nature based activities on every week and it is a great space to give the little ones some freedom in Nature. cannot recommend it enough.”

“What an amazing magical place woodland nurture is. I take my 1 year old to the stay and play session on a Wednesday and he loves it!! I’ve taken all 3 of my children(1, 7 & 9 years old) to the family fun days & each one of them have had an amazing day. & today my soon to be 10 year old had his birthday party here and it was fantastic. So much to do-the 2 & half hours just whizzed by. I’m so happy we’ve found such a wonderful place for our children to experience. I would highly recommend Woodland Nurture for all ages.”

“Wow!!! What an amazing, magical, little woodland wonderland!! From the moment you arrive, the homemade ‘Follow the yellow string’ sign signals the start of your adventure! Up and along the wooded track, following the string tied around the trees, until you reach a clearing where the messy magic begins! Mud kitchens, digging pit, tire sand pits, music teepee, rope ladders, tree swings (just to name a few of the activities), all around an under cover fire circle! Whilst your little monsters enjoy exploring the activities, you can have yourself a lovely hot drink and step back, knowing that they’re safe, enjoying all the great things the outdoors has to offer. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone (which I already have), but I also kind of want to keep it all to myself ! LOVE Woodland Nurture – so glad we found it! ”

“This is exactly what you would expect from a Forest School. It is in a beautiful forest location, with an exciting small walk through the woodland to get to the session. Once there it opens out to an amazing setting for action packed playtime or there is a quiet retreat to read. You can get muddy n messy or sit and play an instrument. There’s so much to do there.”
