Outdoor Nature Exploring – under 5s

We’re always looking for wildlife, bug hunting for worms, beetles and snails; listening for birds and looking for signs of the animals we share our spaces with.

Our sessions are informal and are all about the children leading their exploration, which is how we believe children learn best. We have weekly themes and link these in with a craft and a story, providing them with spotting/nature ID sheets and magnifying classes so they can get up close to the natural world, and help support their natural curiosity. However, if they want to just splash in a muddy puddle, that's fine too, it is, after all, an important way to learn about the world around them.

Level: Preschooler, Parent and toddler


We take a very Scandinavian approach to weather and play outdoors all year round, in all weather. Please make sure children and adults are dressed appropriately, with waterproofs and wellies when needed. Going into the colder months, Ella's wool has some great tips on how to dress your little ones to keep them warm when they're outdoors:

To help keep everyone safe, we are continuing to ask families to:

• Not attend if you, or anyone in your household is unwell.
• Not attend if you’ve been asked to self-isolate
