Home/ Nottingham West & surrounding areas/ Saplings details

Saplings is our fun, nature inspired activity group for pre-school children and their parents. If your child is active, interested in nature and loves playing in the great outdoors then this is for them!

Your child will learn, play and create with sensory activities inspired by nature, including bug hunts, mud painting, natural art. They will be introduced to the changing seasons, a range of wildlife, they will forage, make things to take home.

Who? Sessions are suitable for children aged 18 months (or younger if they are able to walk) up to 4 years old (pre-school). Parents must stay with their child too. Younger siblings (babies who can not walk) can come along free of charge.

When? Sessions usually last around 1 hour. Bookings are made for a whole term, however we can offer one-off trial sessions at £7.50 each, and we accept late-comers joining part-way through the term if there are still spaces (we would just charge you for the remaining weeks of the term).

Where? A green space near you! Click 'book saplings' to see where exactly in each park Saplings is at.

What should they wear? Dress for the outdoors & the weather! A sun hat, airy clothing & sun cream if it's hot & sunny. Waterproofs, outdoor shoes & layers if it's colder, raining or muddy. We sometimes use temporary shelters/gazebos but also love to play in puddles...!
