Forest School at Pumpkin Patch

‘It’s an excellent experience at a young age, Aashil has learnt so much about wild life which I don't think

he can learn

otherwise’


what

parents say

At Pumpkin Patch we have always valued the importance of children exploring the outdoors.

Our forest programme enables children to explore and respect

nature, take risks and succeed. One moment I observed while

out in the forest sums up the benefits of the forest to me; the

children were collecting firewood for the fire, where we were

going to make pancakes, yummy! When one child picked up the

end of a large log and quietly tried to drag it along the forest floor.

A friend saw him struggling and raced over to help him, then

another and another.

The four children quietly discussed how to navigate around trees,

over logs and arrived at the fire circle. One of the children said '

Freddy got a big log.' Freddy replied with a big smile

'we did it together'.

The children were so excited to go back to the forest every week, running down the path  

it's forest day, wonder what we will do today?

Do you think the animals would have taken our letters?'

New skills learned, friendships formed and self esteem soared!!  

'Look, look, look I can climb this tree because I can,' Erin age 4.
