The children in Reception class are unfortunately too young to take part in Scouts. We don't want them to miss out, so offer a programme of Forest Schools. We call our Reception section 'Squirrels'.
Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers children regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees. This helps get our 'Squirrels' ready for Beavers and ensures that they can take part in all our scouting community activities. We employ an 'outdoor co-ordinator', trained in forest schools, to deliver an exciting programme that compliments the ethos and values of Scouting.
