Playing in Nature.

Our Yüme Outdoor Learning programme includes regular visits to Wandsworth park and the river Thames, both in the morning & in the afternoons (all age groups).

Children over 3 will have additional Forest School sessions twice a month, to continue to improve their understanding of nature, develop motor skills, problem-solving and risk assessing with a trained Forest School team.

Children will also engage in team and individual sports, promoting a healthy lifestyle and physical development. Yüme works in partnership with a private sports coach that customises activities to our children's needs and interests.

In nature, children get to play, learn, develop their senses and body awareness, while understanding the World around them, in a more conscious and organic way.


Yüme is inspired by the six principles that defines what a Forest School is.


Regular trips into the woodlands (not just one-offs) no matter the weather: changes in the Natural environment are just invitations to learn (and play).


Understanding of the ecological impact & sustainability through fostering the relationship with nature. We create a strong physical and emotional bond with nature.


We offer children the opportunity to take and assess risks, with a purpose, that comes from an exploratory sense or instinct.


Our educators are Forest school qualified, passionate about nature and learning and promoting exploration in the outdoors.


Children & educators are placed at the centre of the explorations, building a collaborative learning process and sharing their own achievements.


As a result, Forest schools enable more resilient, confident, independent children that enjoy living and learning in nature.
