FAMILY FOREST SCHOOl
We're a unique woodland stay and play Forest School where you and your child can explore the outdoors together.
Trees & Tribe provides an enchanted environment where you and your little one can discover wildlife together, get creative with craft and enjoy stories around the fire. It provides opportunities for your child to experience the wonders of nature, and enjoy these precious discoveries with you by their side.
HOW IT WORKS
Each 2 hour session is guided by our Trees & Tribe Forest School Leader who has over 30 years of experience delivering outdoor education.
We base our five-week forest school courses around the seasons. The courses are available for 2-5 year olds on Thursdays. In small groups the sessions based in private woodland in Sevenoaks, offer a fantastic experience that will create lifelong memories for all generations attending.

WHAT TO WEAR
It can get quite cold in the shade of the trees so layers are always advisable. We recommend long sleeves and trousers even in the warmer months as they help protect against the natural environment. Insect repellent is always advisable to guard against the pesky bugs sometimes found outside, and sunscreen for the days when the sun is shining. In the colder weather, waterproofs, wellies, waterproof gloves and a hat are a must. They are also sometimes needed in the summer months so please keep them to hand.
WHAT TO BRING
• Small ruck sack
• Water bottle
• Small towel for drying hands
• Hand gel
BUGGIES & BABIES
The site is accessible to buggies, however, families may prefer to use baby slings for little ones.
We love exploring, whatever the weather! The only time we cancel a Forest School session is during high winds or when there is a risk of thunder and lightning. We rarely need to cancel a class but if we do, we will offer an alternative session. Refunds are not given in the event of an adverse weather closure.
We have a composting loo on site.
There is parking on site. Trees & Tribe staff will be on hand to assist you with parking.
If you can’t make your session then we will do all we can to swap your date/time.
