Little Badgers

"Play is the answer to how anything new comes about"
Jean Piaget
Little Badgers Forest School


Little Badgers is a carer & toddler group suitable for 1-4 year olds with their mums, dads, or whoever looks after them.

We follow the same routine every week because young children love repetition.

  • Welcome

  • Story time reflecting the season we are in

  • Seasonal activity - this could be a nature craft, scavenger hunts, trail making, fires, tools...

  • Snack time

  • Song time with seasonal songs and rhymes

  • Goodbye


We follow the interests of the children and choose activities based on what we observe. Here's a link about child-led play which very much reflects our ethos at Badgers.

The fee is for a whole term for a family of up to 3 children under 5. We don't charge per child. Childminders can bring up to 3 children as a 'family'. It works out approx £8 per session. You are very welcome to bring other adult family members along too - we love visitors.

We loved Badgers forest school. We miss it so much. It made us embrace the outdoors so much more. Bad weather no longer stops us from being outside. Jenny always had amazing craft ideas as well.

Wonderful forest school, has really brought my shy daughter out of herself, the leaders couldn’t be more warm and welcoming and we learn so much each week about nature and the outdoor world. Great for parent mental health too.

Badgers is a wonderful place- my son thoroughly enjoyed his time there. Jenny creates a lovely balance of structure and time for free play and discovery. Highly recommended.
