Farm Adventurers

Farm Adventurers is our unique, all year-round sessional childcare experience for 2½ to 5-year-olds. We are based in our own ‘forest area’ with a log cabin behind the sports pitch in the grounds of the farm.

We believe the outdoor environment is an exceptional environment for young children to learn in, we believe it provides opportunities for children to experience the natural environment and nature play in all weathers and seasons in a spontaneous and fun way.

We believe being outdoors provides limitless opportunities to enrich young children’s learning and is essential for their physical and emotional wellbeing, whether it be through bug hunting, exploring the changing seasons, mud play, creative play or observing nature and the changing seasons.

Farm Adventurers runs:

Monday to Friday 9am to 12pm for 2½ to 5-year-olds (max 16 children)

Tuesday to Thursday 1pm to 4pm for 3 to 5-year-olds (max 8 children)

We also offer a 12pm to 1pm lunchtime session for 3 to 5-year-olds who are either staying all day or combining Farm Adventurers and Nursery sessions (max 8 children)
