Kate and Richard organised and ran the most amazing 5th birthday party for our son! There was a fantastic range of activities, including a giant mud slide, sausages and smores over the fire, log sawing, painting and a mud kitchen. Communication before the party was seamless and their enthusiasm and passion helped to make it a fantastic party! Thank you so much!

My daughter and I had THE best time this morning! The place is amazing and the activities are exciting and varied; there’s something there for every child to enjoy! We especially enjoyed roasting the ‘shmallows’ on the fire. Added bonus for the great hospitality; offers of hot drinks in the chilly weather. We will definitely be going again. ☺️

We love the sessions at Little Acorns! The staff are wonderful and so caring towards parents and babies. All the activities and the environment is well planned allowing children to develop and learn new skills and, most importantly, have lots of fun!

My son had a fantastic 7th birthday party at Little Acorns Forest School. Very well organised and a wonderful setting in the forest. What an amazing party it was for a group of 6-7 year old boys! Such fun! Den-building, forest games and crafts, mudslide, campfire hot dogs and s’mores. The forest school teachers were brilliant ensuring the party ran smoothly and everyone had lots of fun. All the parents commented at how good the party was being in the forest. Thank you! Highly recommended!!

I really enjoyed the educational and fun course. We did a lot in the 7 day course. Everything we learned we performed in practice and we had plenty of opportunities to ask Dave questions. Dave has a lot of experience and knowledge about forests and makes clear links how to implement this in your classes. He enthused our little group and gave us knowledge to move forward with forest lessons we want to teach to our children.

We had the most wonderful time today with Kate and Debbie at our Church family Forest session! All of the families had THE best time and Kate and Debbie were incredible!!! We couldn’t have hoped for better leaders for the day! There were so many fun activities for the children and the mud slide was so much fun!!! Can’t recommend Little Acorns enough!! Kate and Debbie, thank you so much. You were both amazing!!! We look forward to coming back again 😃

We booked for our child’s 7th birthday party for 25 children! Steve and Shelley were fantastic party hosts. The area is well laid out for children to explore and there are so many opportunities for play (hammocks, golf ball runs, craft, dens). The party food was perfection – hot dogs were cooked on a fire and then finished off with s’mores. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Little Acorns for parties!

Most of my lessons came through difficulties in my personal life. On 20th May last year, 2022, have found my Ikigai, in October have been Swon by Cidália Gonçalves and Patrick Harrison ( Aprende na Floresta, Portugal ). Sping is coming and the Seed germinates. The Training with Dave Churchward and Cidália Gonçalves in Portugal, last week, 10 to 16 March, 2023, was more than a Fertilization for the Bloom in Spring. With my bare feet I feel all their Motivation, a high quality Coaching, that made me a better Man. Dave Churchward, Cidalia Gonçalves and Patrick Harrison, have give the Tools and Nutrients, to Creat a Healthy and Attractive, Forest School in the Loulé/Algarve. This was more than a Forest School Training, this was one of the most amazing life experiences in the world I ever had in my Life, and now I’m sure where to put my feet in the right place, for then stand firm, on my Portfolio, Back to Square One, Pilot Project, the Creation of a Ecosystem There are no more words to describe the Motivation Little Acorn Forest School pass to me. Thanks to all Team, and keep the good Work, in the name of Children and Education.
