We believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to learn and explore in the outdoors, with this in mind we offer Home Education sessions for families who have chosen this path. The sessions run at the moment once a fortnight on a Friday and are open to anyone, we don't have an age limit as we feel this excludes families with younger siblings so everyone is welcome.
Our sessions are run in a private woodland setting just outside of Bishop Auckland, if you haven't been to us before please let us know and we will send you the details of how to find us. The sessions are very laid back and are fully child lead, we offer option of different activities at each session but never force the children to take part in these, they are free to do as they wish learn, play or explore they choose.
We don't insist on block bookings and individual sessions are available to book in the bookings page of the website, we also offer a sibling discount as having children of our own we know how expensive it can get. The first child is charged at £6, second child £4 and each child after is £3.50 the place are book and pay via the website. If we need to cancel any sessions due to weather (high winds or heavy snow) or insufficient numbers an alternative date will be offered or a refund given. We do need a minimum of 8 children to make the sessions viable but we will advice on this if the sessions were not able to go ahead. All of our sessions include drinks and snacks for the children and hot drinks for the adults at no extra cost.
These sessions are open sessions so anyone is able to come along, we do work with closed groups on a regular basis. If you run a closed group ad would like to speak to us regarding running sessions for you then please contact us and we would be happy to discuss your needs and options.
