What is Pelican Explorers?

What is Pelican Explorers?

We are delighted to let you know that, after lots of careful consideration, conversations and Risk Assessment planning we are in a position to restart Pelican Explorers this term although we have had to make some significant changes for obvious reasons. Our first offering will be to offer Pelican Explorers on both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, 10am – 11.30am. This will take place in Big Wood on Tuesday mornings and Little Wood on Wednesday mornings. The first sessions would take place in the week commencing 21 September running through until the week commencing 7 December (two week half term break from 16 October until 2 November) making a 10 week block. The cost would be £50 for the term and you would need to register for either the Tuesday or Wednesday session. We will gift you a reusable coffee cup (with lid) to bring with you each week and ask you to bring a cup for your child. We will provide the coffee/tea/hot chocolate as normal along with the infamous flapjack! Capacity will initially be capped to 12 families per group and places will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.

Pelican Pioneers

Pelican Pioneers

At present we are only able to offer our Pelican Pioneers sessions.

These will be taking place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays 10.00am - 11.30am

The sky is the limit for our Pelican Pioneers, who, in our specially designed Forest School areas known as ‘Little Wood' and 'Big Wood' are able to embrace their inner-explorers. Our secluded woodlands prove the perfect playground in which children are free to enjoy activities such as den building, tree climbing, animal petting, and outdoor cooking.
