Whether a nannie or childminder looking for something different to do, or a parent who wants to try new activities alongside their children, everyone is welcome at Surrey Hills Forest School stay and play sessions. The sessions are two hours long and allow you and your child to explore one acre of woodland, taking part in Forest School activities together.

Your children will get the opportunity to interact with other children, allowing the adults to join in as and when they wish.

The sessions are planned with a weekly theme, ranging from outdoor cooking to nature trails. Accompanying each session will be an activity related to the theme, giving your children the chance to take their work home with them.

During the session there will be time for tea or coffee and during the cold weather hot chocolate for the children. Why not take the time to enjoy a coffee and chat with others or just enjoy our fantastic environment.

The session is brought to a close, with the children given the chance to give their verdict on the session which is added to the weekly evaluation, giving the children and adults a sense of ownership over the forthcoming sessions.

The sessions are run throughout the year, in almost all weathers, but are subject to cancellation.


The stay and play sessions are half termly, you must sign up for the full half term to take part, normally six weeks long.  Sessions are £8 a week per child and payable in advance, before the term commences.
