Natural Play – available at our Fortune Green Centre, West Hampstead

Natural Play is an exciting project which helps children discover and enjoy the natural world. The project is open to children of all needs and abilities and is a great way to make new friends, try new things, get out into nature and have fun! Activities include forest school activities, pond dipping, bug hunts, tree climbing, den building, bush craft, wild art, gardening, cooking on campfires and much more.

Playworkers ensure active and safe participation and initial assessments will be carried out to determine the support needs of each child.
