Birchfields Park Forest School

Into the Woods Parent and Toddler Club

Come and join us in the woods for some forest school inspired fun at Birchfields Park in Longsight! These story-based sessions are aimed at pre-school children (we are currently expanding our provision to include babies) and their parents /carers with the aim of providing a space where families can learn and play in the outdoors together and meet other people in the community. Our activities are designed to get families having some outdoor, creative fun together and we encourage free, explorational play during the session. This might include making dens, going on bear hunts, playing hide and seek games, campfire cooking and making simple natural crafts. We structure our sessions with an opening circle usually involving a story or song and an ending circle around the fire where we share a snack. In the middle session we provide activities which you are welcome to take part in but we also give you permission to explore the site and just enjoy the outdoors!

Booking is essential so don’t miss out as places are limited, email or call 07597514646 to find out more. The cost of each session is £5.50 or £3 for low/unwaged families.  There are discounts if you buy successive sessions.  You can book us through Eventbrite (see sidebar)
