Meet our Woodland Explorers

Your child’s early years are such an exciting, happy and fulfilling time as the world opens up before them, building foundations for future learning.

This is not just about making sure that they can hold a pencil or read a book; your child needs other fundamental skills to progress at school and develop as happy, confident individuals who show resilience and a determination to succeed. We aim to inspire even our youngest learners to become self-motivated and independent learners.

Our Woodland Explorers programme will introduce your child to 16 fun-filled animals who open up a world of learning through exploration and purposeful play. Each character has an important part to play in the Early Years curriculum; Curious Cat will help us to make sense of the world while Wordy Weasel will help us to link sounds and letters as we learn to read together.

As we travel on our learning journey through the woods, we will embark on lots of new and exciting adventures; encountering and learning more about each animal through poems, stories and games.
