Tree tots

    Pre-school toddlers and their parents are invited to join our Outdoor Learning team for a weekly toddle into Howe Park Wood followed by a “Nature Play” session either in the wood or in the case of very bad weather at the education centre.

    The session is specifically designed for pre-school children and their parents or carers. Activities will vary according to the weather and the season. These will range from stories, mud kitchen creativity, bug hunting or making things with natural bits and bobs we have collected on our toddle in the woods. As much of the session as possible will be outside playing in Howe Park Wood.

    We will always go out for at least some of the session, but in the rare occasion that the weather is extremely bad then we may end up back at the Education Centre on occasions where a variety of activities will be offered.

    Sessions run each week with a bookable session from 10am - 12pm.  Prices are £2.50 per child, those under one year are free. There are limited spaces available on the day that are not bookable, these are reserved for people who are unable to book online. You can download the information guide here

    Following discussions with parents, from September the times will be 10:00-11:30.

      Howe Park is probably the woodland mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086. Parts of it may be rare surviving fragments of the 'wildwood' that covered the whole of lowland Britain after the last Ice Age, 6-11,000 years ago.

      There is a café at Howe Park Wood serving cakes, drinks and cold foods.
