Growing up should be fun!

Our main site is a Pre 1800’s ‘ancient woodland Brickyard Wood, Brockley Lane, Chelvey, BS48 4AH (Click  to link to google maps) surrounded by Post-medieval fields created from enclosure of medieval parkland. Our site is 10 minutes from Nailsea, Clevedon, Backwell, Yatton, Cleeve, Claverham, Portishead and Wraxall and only 20 minutes from Bristol.

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 outdoors, 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.

We’re all about making opportunities…
