Forest school is not only for tough children (age group 4 to 12 years)
The Forest school is a new way to naturally stimulate children’s inherent curiosity. The focus at the Forest After School Club is seeing the beauty of nature. They will go on adventures and will be challenged by activities such as treasure hunts, building huts, chopping wood, making campfires, flying kites and doing GPS walks. They will learn about their natural surroundings and a lot more. After-school time is valuable time for young people. They can decide for themselves what they want. To join in outdoor activities or to take the initiative to do something themselves. To become more independent. To spend time on adventure, challenges, games, technology and music in the middle of nature. And to experience all these things under professional guidance.
Our educational employees are trained to observe the children so that they know who is taking part in the activities wholeheartedly and who needs a little help with the adventures.
We offer after school care five days a week between the end of the school day and 18:30 during the regular 40 weeks of the school year. We are also open during school holidays and on the days that the schools are closed incidentally (e.g. for training purposes and internal purposes – margedagen and studiedagen). Please check your preferred location for the exact opening times during school holidays. The location manager can give you more information. Each of our locations usually works with a number of schools. Our Forest After School Clubs are in The Hague and in Rijswijk. We also facilitate an only English spoken After School Club in Kijkduin under our label Big Ben Kids.
