Welcome To The Den Farmside
The Den Farmside – What makes us special……
Farmside opened in February 2012 and from then up until the present day, our Farmside community has grown from strength to strength. This is because of the children we have cared for, our team of highly qualified staff and our supportive relationships with parents.
Farmside is very proud of its forest school development and is an area the children really enjoy. It is a brilliant way to teach children about their natural environment and the world in which they live. Forest schooling allows children to learn how to manage their own risks, how to be safe and how to work well in a team when undertaking tasks and challenges.
From October 2015 Farmside are very excited to launch their new children’s holiday club “Farmside Active “. Farmside Active is a highly active holiday club for children aged 8 years and over.
Farmside active is mainly based around the Forest School philosophy with the addition of playwork and sports. The daily programs are designed to keep the children active, entertained and focused throughout their school holidays. The children are encouraged to help plan their days and their views are taken seriously. Farmside Active is a great way for your child to spend their holidays making new friends and having fun.
Farmside Active club will only run from 09:00 – 15:30 daily. However we can offer wrap around care for children who need additional hours within our forester’s holiday club which has a calmer and more relaxing atmosphere.
