Playing is integral to children’s enjoyment of their lives, their health and their development.

Children and young people whatever their age, culture, ethnicity or social and economic background, need and want to play, indoors and out, in whatever way they can. Through playing, children are creating their own culture, developing their abilities, exploring their creativity and learning about themselves, other people and the world around them.

At Play In The Woods is a Forest School, working hard to improve the opportunities for children to take part in outdoor actives and help schools get involved in outdoor play and education.

At Play In The Woods Forest School

Our main site is 10 minutes from Nailsea, Clevedon, Backwell, Yatton, Cleeve, Claverham and Wraxall called Brickyard Woods.

Children need and want to stretch and challenge themselves when they play. Play provision and play space that is stimulating and exciting allows children to encounter and learn about risk. This helps them to build confidence, learn skills and develop resilience at their own pace.. (Play England Charter for children’s play.)
