Want to know what it's all about before you book? You can read reviews from some of our Saplings parents here:

Our Seaside Baby - "It's lovely to see the children amongst nature, making discoveries, talking to each other and being so enthusiastic about their little task."  Read the full review here

Mad About The Boys - "Each week we would start the class with a welcome song and Sammy the squirrel saying hello to the kids, then move on to a game of 1-2-3 where are you?  It always cracks me up that kids hide behind a slither of a tree and think that they are hidden!" Read the full review here

Bishopston Mum - "The theme of the week was Garden Birds and children spent the session enjoying all kinds of bird-related activities...including a little hunt around the park for little furry birds hidden in the trees and bushes. Children discovered robins, black birds, blue tits and more and were especially delighted to discover that each bird would sing when gently squeezed!" Read the full review here
