Heart of the Wildwood: An Oxfordshire Forest School Organisation

We run forest school sessions in safe woodland locations in and around Oxford.

Our free-play sessions help children develop confidence and creativity through exploring and interacting with the outdoors. Read all about the benefits of outdoor play.

Our instructors are Forest Schools Association accredited and dedicated to helping children get the maximum benefit from playing with minimal adult guidance. Read more about forest school on the Forest Schools Association website.

As well as free-play sessions we work with schools, and run outdoor birthday parties.

How We Are Funded

Due to low funding we now have to charge a small fee for our free play sessions. we also charge for birthday parties. See each session for details. The fees enable us to keep our training and business admin up to date, pay our travel costs and supply cooking equipment to each of our sites.
