From the first time we used forest schools we were so impressed with the staff and activities provided" What Families Say About Us: Based on the results of our anonymous family feedback survey: 100% would recommend our forest school holiday club to a friend 94.6% were 'very satisfied' with the children's experience, and none were dissatisfied "I think the staff are what make forest school so amazing. They are committed to their work and to the children. It wouldn't be the same without Gemma, Donna and the team. Salcey Forest is a lovely location. Big and well established" "I cannot speak highly enough of Acorn forest schools. I have two boys who can be both energetic and shy and often reluctant to get involved. Both of them absolutely love spending time with you- I can genuinely relax knowing they are having fun and learning new skills. The staff are always friendly, smiley and happy to see us. Forest schools in itself is great, but it is the staff who make this particularly special." "All staff care deeply about the children and are very keen to develop their understanding of the natural world. The children absolutely love the forest sessions and that is testament to such a fabulous team. Thank you." "As a family we have been using Forest school for the last couple of years and we love it. The activities are fantastic and brilliant value for money. Not to expensive which enables families to send multiple kids. Staff are brilliant at communication and friendly- we give 10/10 and look forward to seeing the team again in the summer holidays."
