We are taking bookings for the Spring term, which starts on Monday 10th January 2022. During this term we are running Forest School Classes, with the option to book unaccompanied, Stay and Play Classes, Parent and Baby Coffee mornings/afternoons and Taster Classes! If you would like to know more about what forest school is, please click on the FSA logo above.

Spring Term

Forest School 1000-1200 & Stay & Play 1000-1100 starts at £11

We start back on Monday 10th January. This class is for 1 - 4 years, which is accompanied by one parent per child. You can either book the 1 or 2 hour classes and you can upgrade any time. There is the option to book unaccompanied slots too, see below. Here is the link to book https://bookwhen.com/willowsforestschool     

We accept Childcare vouchers and Tax Free vouchers.  

Forest School Drop and Go Classes for Rising 4's

We have 4 slots per 2 hour class, 1000-1200 for children aged 3 to 5 years old. This is ideal (but not essential) for children who have been with us before, they are familiar with our setting and the teams, so attending unaccompanied will be quite a smooth transition. We have a NEW  "Preschool drop and go"  introductory offer running on Wednesday mornings, solely for this age range.  We ask for each child to be able to manage the toilet and demonstrate a good understanding of our Forest School rules. Here is the link to book https://bookwhen.com/willowsforestschool   We accept Childcare vouchers and Tax Free vouchers.

FEES  

Forest School sessions are booked in full terms from Spring 2022. Our sessions start from £11 when booking a full term. This fee is then multiplied by the number of weeks in each term. Siblings receive 55% off their tickets. There are payment plans available but we do specify that if you are receiving a discounted ticket, full payment must be paid at the time of your booking. If you opt to pay in instalments, this is possible when paying for a fully priced ticket. We accept Tax Free Childcare vouchers - book offline & release the funds from your provider to us and we will confirm your booking.  

RESTRICTIONS

As we approach our 8th year, we are proud to be running public classes every day of the week across Surrey. We would usually allow you to swap classes if our numbers allow but at this current time we are not able to offer this.  If you wish to bring an additional adult to help with more than one paying child, this is fine. We are still requesting that one adult attends when accompanying one child and our preference is the same adult each week please.
