  • Questions and Answers
    What if it rains?

    Great! The children love to experience the rain, jumping in puddles and catching water in saucepans for cooking in the ‘mud kitchen’. The children are appropriately dressed in waterproofs and boots (see kit list). The trees provide a natural canopy and we use tarpaulins to create more shelter to play under if necessary.

    Do we go out in all weathers?

    Well most. It’s only high winds that will stop us going outside. In very cold weather the children will be dressed up warmly and remain active. We do have the option of going indoors, with plenty of space to play and learn. But yes, mostly we will be outdoors.

    What is the ratio of adults to children?

    At least 1 adult for every 4 children.

    Do the children need to be toilet-trained?

    No. We have a toilet tent and facilities to change children if needed.
