Nature Tots is a Wildlife Trust programme for pre-school age children, providing a wonderful opportunity for little ones to enjoy and learn from nature.  Growing up with fun experiences in local wild spaces can help inspire a love of nature that lasts a lifetime.  Nature Tots also encourages independent learning and team working - helping to boost communication skills, problem solving, physical development and creativity.

This is child-lead learning and the role of the accompanying adult is to assist the Tots in doing as much of the activities themselves as possible.  We go outside come rain or shine, so always dress for the weather and be prepared to get wet and muddy!
