Woodlands4Kids is based along Forest School principles for pre-schoolers and primary school aged children providing outdoor learning opportunities in local woods.  We are based at Den Wood, Balgove near Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire.  We offer weekly sessions for pre-schoolers  and their parents/carers aged 3-5 years.  We also offer weekly sessions for unaccompanied primary school aged children P1-P7 . Our Holiday Clubs provide a full day of fun in the woods during Easter, Summer and October holidays.  

Please email us at info@gardening4kids.org.uk for further information, discounts for siblings and if your child has any additional support needs before booking.

Clothing requirements – in general, play clothes that you are happy to be covered in mud!

Always! – Waterproof trousers and coat, long trousers, long sleeved tops, wellies or boots, warm jumper, midge repellent.  A change of clothes (just in case!)

Please remember – always check for ticks after a visit to the woods.  If you find one remove it as soon as possible with tick removers or visit your GP.
