Babes in the Wood Weekly Sessions – Autumn 2021 Block

August 24 @ 10:30 am - October 5 @ 12:00 pm


We are excited to announce that our next Babes in the Wood block of sessions will be resume after the summer holidays, starting on the 24th August 2021

This block will consist of 7 sessions will be run from 10.30am-12noon, Tuesday mornings at the Fairy Dell in Castlebank Park.  It’s a fantastic location with toilets and changing room available and within walking distance of Lanark town centre.  We also have use of the community room for making warm drinks and when restrictions allow, using for crafts and play on colder, wet days.


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 principles 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 are £5 each and available as a block booking for Tuesday August 24th – Tues 5th Oct.
