Capacity and environment
There are limited spaces so booking is essential - choose your Wolves in the Woods session and book above. We cannot guarantee a space if you haven't reserved in advance.
These sessions take place in Gatis Community Space's and Boundary Way's woodland areas with natural areas and uneven ground. Risk Assessments are in place and responsibility of little ones lies with their caregivers at all times.
We advise you to bring and wear clothes suitable for outdoors - including the unpredictable British weather!
There are shelters for rainy weather in both locations and will only cancel playing if it is unsafe.
Structure of sessions
Wolves in the Woods sessions begin with a short time gathered together, singing, reciting rhymes and listening to a story to lightly link to today's theme. We gather together again to close the session with a song and say goodbye.
In between there are activities and natural areas to explore, discover, allowing hands-on learning in a natural environment which is gated off, safe and a haven within the city.
