Based in the woods at OrganicLea’s 12 acre growing site, our Forest Time sessions are open to all pre-schoolers will get you exploring, adventuring and playing in the woods with your little one!

They take place on Tuesday or Friday mornings 9.45am – 11.45am (for children from walking)

We offer a nature-based exploration for children & their grownups, giving them the chance to connect with themselves, each other and nature. Our sessions are based in free play & community-building, using a wealth of nature-based crafts, stories, skills, songs & games. It’s also a space to listen to the natural world with wonderment, reverence, respect, and delight!

Our sessions are fully outdoors, with limited wet weather provision. We request that the same adult attends each week to support the creation of community and trust.

How much does it cost?

Our sessions are as much for adults as they are for children. Each two-hour weekly session costs £15 (£7.50 per child plus £7.50 per adult.) Sibling tickets cost £5 from walking, or free for crawlers or those in arms.

We have some bursary places

We are committed to keeping sessions accessible for all families. We offer a number of reduced cost places for families on a low income. Also feel free to get in touch if it is difficult for you to pay for all 8 sessions in one go.

Again our sessions are as much for adults as they are for children. Each two-hour weekly session costs £9 (£4.50 per child plus £4.50 per adult.) Sibling tickets cost £2.50 from walking, or free for crawlers or those in arms.
