Forres Sandle Manor have a fantastic free toddler group, called Tree Tots.
Everyone is welcome – you don’t need to have children at the School.
It is a wonderful opportunity for mums / caregivers / grandparents to come with their children to enjoy time together and with others.
Every Tuesday and Thursday’s during term time
2.00pm – 3.30pm
The group is run by the School’s Nursery Leader, Mrs Kendall.
On Tuesdays…we explore the forest!
Forest sessions allow children to grow in confidence as they explore with freedom, build social and communication skills through play as well as developing their knowledge and understanding, physical skills, whilst also providing opportunities for development in such areas as problem solving and very importantly resilience.
During our sessions we offer both a creative activity as well as the opportunity to allow your child to engage in their own, all important child led play.
At the end of a session we all enjoy a story or songs around the log circle with a warming hot chocolate or a marshmallow in the winter months and a cold drink and snack in the warmer months.
On Thursdays…messy play! (And you don’t have to clear up!)
The session runs in the Nursery classroom in our Lower school. Adults get to relax a little with a cup of tea or coffee whilst the children engage in lots of messy painting or water play (without having to have it in your own home!). As well as enjoy seeing how much joy a child can get from a mud kitchen, sand pit or simply riding a bike around our enclosed outdoor classroom.

What one Mum thinks:
“Tree Tots has been part of our routine the past few years. We were lucky enough to find out about the group through social media and enjoyed the sessions so much, we decided the nursery would be the perfect environment for our son. From wonderful crafts, well thought out and creative play areas to toasting marshmallows and warm hot chocolate, the group is enjoyed by children of all ages, come rain or shine…and even flutters of snow!” Mum, Emma
