Are you looking for new ideas to develop curiosity and enthusiasm for learning amongst your children? OASES adult-led sessions encourage active exploration and play. Whether through Forest Schools, Beach Schools or OASES Active Learning your children will engage with each other and the natural world to make connections, develop critical thinking and have fun.

Our sessions provide unique learning experiences that will ignite children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, helping your setting to move a child forward in all areas of their learning and development.

Although each OASES EYFS session will focus upon the development of specific skills the sessions are all designed to encourage active exploration of the natural world, hence they innately develop both a child’s physical literacy and their knowledge and understanding of the world.  The interactive nature of our sessions mean that the children will have the opportunity to develop personal, social and emotional skills as well as oracy and communication skills.

The sessions can be delivered at your own school or at one of our partner sites, for example Hamsterley Forest.
