We are passionate about introducing children to the countryside, and believe that the younger children come to love being outside, the more likely they will be to care about the environment as they grow up. Our Big Owls started with graduates from Little Owls, and runs periodically in the holidays and at weekends.
As with Little Owls, we head outside for at least half of every session, and our activities are seasonally focused, for example hunting for frogs in late winter, minibeasting in the summer, harvesting vegetables in the autumn, following a snowflake trail in the woods in the winter. Arts and crafts activities and stories or poems complement each session, as do themed cookies from our kitchen!
Big Owls Animal Feed
22nd March 2020
Animal Feed: What could be better way to start a Sunday morning than joining us down on the farm and helping to feed the animals. With animals coming and going, moving around and growing up, no two feeds are the same. There may also be eggs to collect and goats to be milked. Morning feeding...
Parents, grandparents and carers enjoy their time with us too, and all activities are lead by experienced staff.
Many children stay with us for two years, so book early to make sure of a place! School holidays and occasional weekends, 10.00 – 12.00 or 1.00 – 3.00.
