Some of the parents comments:
“I like the way guidance is given but the children are free to explore the things that interest them most, according to their age and level of ability. I also like the way the children are reminded of the rules etc. And the hot chocolate break is great!”
“…..it was great how you went with what the children were interested in and added resources so that they could extend their own learning.”
“It’s been an education! Lovely to be in the woods and learn about the trees, plants, fungi and birds. Nice to meet others too.”
After 6 sessions when asked:
What interested your child the most?
“Everything, can’t pick out one favourite thing”
