Charley’s Place Redwood will introduce the groups first Forest School concept.
“We are thrilled to see the Redwood centre complete, including its eco focus features that work perfectly with the range top surroundings, including fire pits and forest walks” centre owner Pete Hewett said.
“Forest School is about teaching children using the outdoor environment, the ethos is about promoting confidence, self-esteem and independence through small achievable tasks” added centre owner Jason Hewett.
All Charley’s Place Forest School sessions are linked to the curriculum, with the emphasis on child-lead learning.
