……. you would have found excited children visiting Dean Close Pre-Prep’s Forest School! Children from Day Nurseries in Cheltenham were invited to join Dean Close Pre-Prep to have ‘Fun in the Forest’ during Friday 24th April.

Children were able to come and experience a forest school session in our lovely woodland area, which is currently full of beautiful wild flowers! In addition to playing our special game of hide and seek and ‘sticky elbows’, they took part in an exciting ‘natural’ treasure hunt, identifying birds, finding mini-beasts and playing in the woodland. They also listened carefully to the birds and enjoyed fruit and a drink at Base Camp! We were lucky to have perfect weather conditions for the children to explore and enjoy the day.

Our Forest School is a fantastic resource here at Dean Close Pre-Prep which benefits all our children. We are very happy to host this special Forest School Day and to be able to share out woodland with some of our neighbouring nurseries.
