This year Little Oaks Forest School is pleased to announce that we will be working in partnership with an overseas company and welcoming Chinese children to Little Oaks Forest School to join our learning groups for Forest School. Our first group of Chinese children will be visiting in February and we are confident that the children at Little Oaks will enjoy sharing our Forest School experiences with our new Chinese friends.
