Run by Jacky, the Forest School now adds to the activities on the farm for the Nursery, the Holiday Playscheme, and Group/School Visits. Using the woods and ponds, a rich natural classroom children/adults learn to explore, to experiment and follow  their own interests. Lots of activities including; den building, bug hunting, campfires, cooking on an open fire. Great fun.

What is on offer

We have two Forest Schools sites at the Mohair Centre, both have been turned into outdoor classrooms for use with children & groups, we are Forest Schools trained and can deliver the full range of skills offered by them. It is all about children, young people and adults building self-esteem and independence through exploring and experiencing the natural world. It is important that children are able to build upon these experiences. One session is fun, more than one session is ideal in terms of learning and development.
