Babes in the Wood Weekly Sessions

April 20 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


We are excited to announce that our Babes in the Wood sessions will be starting up after the Easter holidays, all being well with restrictions continue to lift as planned.

Our first session back will be a free session.  If you previously booked a session in September that was cancelled due to restrictions changing this session is being offered for free to all those who were unable to attend.  We have also decided to offer it as a free session for anybody thinking about booking for the spring/summer block but unsure of what we offer at the sessions.


Babes in the Wood is a nature based preschool group for adults and their children to come along, play games, make friends, and learn all about the world around us through exploration and fun.  Based on the Forest School prinicples the session are child led and focussed allowing children to dip in and out of activities at their will or explore the environment on their own if they prefer.  At each session we have mud kitchen, tree swing, den building, games and nature crafts for the children to take part in.  All sessions finish with a gathering around the fire for some songs, stories or toasted goodies.



Sessions will take place every Tuesday from 10.30am – 12 noon at Castle Bank Park Lanark which also provides us with a warm room should we need to retreat due to cold or wet weather and there are also toilets and changing facilities too. The first session will be offered free on Tuesday 20th April but tickets must be booked for numbers and track and trace purposes. If you would like to come to our FREE session please book here:
