Meet Jenny from the Brockhole Education Team 

Hi, I’m Jenny, one of the newer members of the team. Having completed a degree in Primary Education I have now decided to focus on educating children in the outdoors and I'm excited to start a new program here in the fantastic grounds. The program is for parents and Brocklings to come and explore the wonders of our natural environment!

I am bringing ideas from my teaching and incorporating them with the exciting environment we have in the National Park in a series of developmental sessions.

You and your children will have the chance to don your wellies, use your senses and make a range of wildly wonderful creations to take away with you before settling down with a cuppa whilst the little Brocklings let loose in the soft play.

- Jenny Mather

Each week will bring a different focus in an hour-long session which you can drop into anytime between 10:30 and 12. The children will learn through exploring their senses and using their imaginations in facilitated play and creative activities. You will get the chance to meet likeminded parents and watch your children grow into little adventurers. So come along and get exploring!
