Tiny Treehoppers Parent & Toddler Group

About this experience

Tiny Treehoppers is somewhere your children can enjoy playing in the Great Outdoors! We have a 'base camp' in the woods with hammocks, crafts, bug hunts, dens, mud pies, stories and songs. If we are lucky we will also see the steam trains of the Bluebell Railway go by too! Outdoor play is so beneficial for children and Forest School helps them build their physical, social and cognitive skills - here they can make us much mess as they like and as much noise too since there is plenty of space for little ones to run off steam.

For the adults you can enjoy spending some time with like minded parents and have a chat over a cuppa! We encourage families to come regularly if you can to give your children the chance to make friends and become familiar with the group. We do understand though that life gets busy and that's not always possible though.

*Treehoppers is an Ofsted registered nursery for children aged 2.5 to 6 years. *

About your mentor

I am passionate about the outdoors! I trained as a Forest School Leader in 2013 and since then have run parent & toddler groups, after school & holiday clubs and woodland parties. But my dream has been to open a woodland nursery and this finally happened in October 2018. Previously an Ofsted outstanding childminder & having worked in pre-schools I have a lot of experience in the early years. I now have a great team of enthusiastic and highly qualified practitioners who help me to run Treehoppers Forest Kindergarten.

Suzanne Mark

I'm a Mum of teenagers and a 10 year old, with a very scruffy dog and a passion for the outdoors. I usually go home at the end of each day covered in mud, smelling of campfires with pockets full of pine cones, string and other 'treasures'!
