Farnham charity space2grow has launched space2play, an innovative new nature-based stay and play session for two to four-year-olds accompanied by a parent or carer.
Sessions will take place three mornings a week during term-time in the beautifully wild community garden.
Led by local primary school teacher and certified Forest School lead Catherine Floyd, the sessions follow the principles of Forest School, supporting the emotional and physical development of pre-school children through outdoor play, activities and exploration.
“The aim is to help create resilient, confident, independent and creative learners, ready to start their school journey,” said Catherine.
“The space2grow garden is a unique, natural space in the centre of town and we’re hoping to attract a variety of young families from the local community, especially those who don’t have outside space at home and would benefit from spending time in nature with their young children.”
Thanks to support from the Waverley Borough Council Thriving Communities fund space2grow are able to offer fully-funded places to those who would otherwise not be able to access this type of activity.
