Forest School is borne out of the Scandinavian Kindergarten where pre-school children spend a lot of time playing in the outdoors all year round.  The aim of PDT Forest School Kindergarten is to create a stimulating, safe and secure environment where friendly and welcoming staff can assist with the unfolding and development of the child in the beautiful unique local woodland environment at Plas Derw. To fully gain the benefits of this ethos it should be experienced on a regular basis therefore sessions are offered on a block booking prepaid basis.
