New pricing policy

We are constantly aware that our prices remain out of reach for some low-income families, yet know we need to make ends meet ourselves and to value the work we do. 

SO, we are introducing a new system: Simply, we offer a choice of tariffs and you choose the one you can honestly afford. 

£20, £28 or £36 per child, per day.

We really hope that through this we can create a bursary to enable all children, regardless of income, the opportunity to attend our Forest school.
