Muddy Boots Forest Adventures

Does your baby/child love being outdoors?

Muddy Boots Forest Adventures is the place for them, an award winning, well established Forest School now in its 7th year, currently covering Essex and Suffolk.

Our unique Forest School is run by a highly experienced Montessori Teacher and Forest School Leader who has worked with children for nearly 18 years, each session is 100% child led with lots of props and activities set up around the woodland. This allows children to go off and follow their own interests, will they choose to climb a tree, balance on the climbing ropes, swing in the swings, dig for treasure, hunt for bugs, use tools or watch the birds? The only thing stopping them is their imagination.

We pride ourselves in offering a relaxed informal environment where children lead and parents breathe! They provide a no pressure environment where children can be with others or be alone and parents can step back from their busy lives and be at one with nature.

We currently run in these beautiful woodlands:
🌳 ABBERTON - Mondays & Tuesdays
🌲 HIGHWOODS - Mondays & Tuesdays
🌲 IPSWICH - Wednesdays & Fridays 🌿

We offer a selection of different groups to suit everyone:
🍼 'Babes In The Wood' for New Parents
