Forest school to launch in Westerham

By Kevin Black in Education

Forest Kindergarten with the support of the local Squerryes Estate is launching a new forest school at Hosey Hill, Westerham to provide local children with more opportunities to get outdoors.

The new school will provide activities for children from 3 to 10 year olds including den building, woodland art, crafts and bug hunting. The school will run on weekdays in term-time as well as school holidays.

A recent report* found that 74% of British children spent less than an hour per day “I am excited to be able to offer our forest school now to parents, tots and children in the holidays, building on the success of our recent OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ rating. Hosey Hill is a beautiful woodland setting, and it will be a great opportunity for local children to explore and learn here” said Caroline Watts founder of Forest Kindergarten

“I’m working on ways to give local families more opportunities to get outdoors to enjoy our beautiful countryside here. The forest school is our first project and one that uses some of our local woodland that would otherwise be left undiscovered” said Henry Warde of the Squerryes Estate
