Beach School

Connected with the Elements

We think it is important that children have the opportunity to really connect with the open spaces and the elements our local beach has to offer.  

For children over 3 years old we offer Beach School experiences for a small group every day. On a Beach School day children have the opportunity to tend to the edible garden, feed the chickens, and cook in our pizza oven or on the open fire.  In the afternoon the group go to the local beach by minibus for exploration and discovery.  The beach raises interesting questions which the children will often discuss together – we occasionally compile a diary after a session by the sea: please see our sample Beach Diary. 

Beach sessions are available to all the older Pre-school children - the small size of the group means that each child will have the opportunity to go approximately once a month.

There is no additional charge for Beach School and to support these experiences we have acquired a beach hut to give us shelter on the wilder days. We expect that most children will want to get involved, however if you would prefer your child did not access these experiences that’s fine too.
