Forest School Learning

Welcome To Our Forest School In Wallasey


Forest School

Forest School Wallasey

Our Forest School in Wallasey allows our children to explore their surroundings and learn about all things outdoors. We create muddy puddles., make handmade bug hotels and find lots of insects. Also, we collect natural materials for arts and crafts use. Forest School includes forest learning, creative arts, nature studies and much more to support the children's development.

In light of our current global pandemic and the many adaptations we face as a community, we have taken consideration to our nursery vision and asked ourselves “What do we want for the children here at Pitter Patters?”.

As most of you will know, outdoor learning is high on our list of opportunities for the children and the team members here, and we have several gardens for all age groups to access.  We believe now, more than ever, children and adults need to experience the natural world and all it has to offer, to better their well-being, overall development and biological connection with nature.  We have therefore made the decision to extend our Forest School provision and we feel very privileged that we have the opportunity to do this.

To allow us to expand these sessions we now have our very own Forest School teacher, Karen, who will run the sessions alongside the staff from our Big Toddler and Pre-School rooms.

Forest School Leader

Karen Brenchley

My name is Karen Brenchley and I am the new forest school leader at Pitter Patters. 

I have always loved being outside in nature and have been working with children in outdoor and environmental education for many years. I am a qualified Level 3 Forest School leader and have seen first-hand, many times, the huge positive benefits of Forest School and outdoor education for children, especially in terms of building their confidence and self-esteem. I am really excited about working with the children at Pitter Patters and want to share a bit about the Forest School ethos with you.
