What:  Please sign up to help construct a forest path for a school that accommodates preschool to secondary classes and that encourages the development of children’s emotional and physical development through outdoor play, activities and exploration in a woodland classroom.

The Holland Park Ecology Unit will be providing fun-filled learning for any little ones who are interested.

Gloves, hi-viz vests and all tools will be provided and as professional grade tools will be used, training will also be provided.  Appropriate tools will be available for little ones.
Where: Forest School in Holland Park, in The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London.

How: Please confirm your attendance to Caroline (caroline.chang@farcap.com) andTamara (thhoward@btinternet.com).   If you intend on bringing your little ones or if any members of your party have special needs, please let us know so we can make arrangements.
