We try to make our sessions and events as accessible as possible to everyone.

  • For forest school sessions in term time we usually charge £2 per child or £5 for three or more.
  • We charge a few pounds per child for school holiday events and sessions (see individual session details).
  • We charge an hourly fee for birthday parties.

Heart of the Wildwood is run by Melanie Kinghan and much appreciated volunteers. We are grateful for any donations – large or small – by local buisnesses and parents to allow us to continue to provide our valuable service to the local community in Oxford. Our expenses include:

  • Training Forest School session leaders – Up to £2000 per leader.
  • Admin involved with setting up events, organising training, legal and insurance requirements, liaising with the Oxford Parks Team – Around £500 per month.
  • Ingredients, tools, craft materials and lots, lots more.
