Little Critters

Little Critters

We have had a wonderful term so far at Little Critters with a complete mixture of weather from freezing cold snow, relentless rain to a scorching heatwave! We have had some great feedback too from parents:

"How we love Little Critters! It was the first thing we signed up for when we moved to the area and it’s been brilliant from the outset. Lovely, friendly passionate teachers who love what they do and love the outdoors. In such a busy world with so much going on, it’s the perfect antidote to screens, soft play and sofas. My little ones both love coming and the leaders are so encouraging and enthusiastic with them. We’ve done do many brilliant things so far; Gruffalo hunts, witches’ potions, ant hill observations and lots of stories to name but a few. And hot chocolate. And mud! We miss it when it’s not on and I can see us coming for a long time. Thank you for making it all such fun and so special. We love LC! "

Dangerous Dads - its "cracking"!

Dangerous Dads - its "cracking"!

That was the verdict of one of the Dads and his 2 sons who came along to our most recent Dangerous Dads event! When Finn, aged 3 was asked what the best bit was he said....."All of it!!!" We started running these groups back in September 2017 and its been brilliant to see how popular it has become - there are very few opportunities like this locally for Dads to spend some quality time in the outdoors, connecting with their children in nature among other like minded Dads. One of our regular Dads says: " Its great to do something totally different with the kids. The pressures of modern life can be eased with a bit of fire and a lot of mud. Throw in some chopping and sawing and slack lines and of course toasted marshmallows and you have a recipe for a great couple of hours in the woods. It beats going to soft play any day."

New Beginnings...Brambletye School

New Beginnings...Brambletye School

We were thrilled when Brambletye School invited us to run some trial Forest School sessions at their school recently for parents and their children.  Not least because the schools own 120 acres of gorgeous woodland! With plenty of deadwood on the ground for building dens and making fires, and some logs for seating the area was perfect for Forest School.
