Pelican Explorers is an outdoor learning programme, primarily aimed at children aged 3-4. These fun sessions are located in our Little Wood, and led by Nursery Assistant, Mrs Clare Wrelton. The idea is to enable pre-school children the opportunity to socialise and learn through child-initiated play. Whilst we suggest these sessions are more suited to children aged 3 to 4, we do have children as young as 18 months join the sessions if they are sturdy on their feet.
Activities are often themed around the seasons and special days such as Halloween. We love building campfires and have been known to toast the odd marshmallows or smores, accompanied by hot chocolate (loved by parents as well as children!). Other popular activities include (careful) pumpkin carving, autumn leaf art, woodland dogs from logs, and planting runner beans and other seasonal vegetables.
The sessions are perfect for little ones who love the great outdoors.
The Pelican Explorers programme is overseen by Mrs Claire Luckhurst. Claire is the Head of Pre-Prep at King's Hall School and has over 20 years experience in the early years sector.
