Forest School

Annecy Catholic Primary School  have invited Charlie Bear's to enjoy their forest area in the secure school grounds.


There are many activities and imaginative play opportunities at the site and we also take along some of our own that may be relevant to the season or the children’s current interests.


We enjoy a snack in the outdoors mid-morning then walk back to nursery for our lunch before it’s time for parents to collect.


There have been many studies proving how much children can gain from learning in nature and the benefits of forest school sessions.

Beach School

For a week in the summer term we hire a beach hut near to Frankie’s Café and spend a lovely time sharing activities in the sun.

We love to paint the pebbles, fly a kite and picnic on the beach plus many more fun games. We also help our local environment by having a beach clean during each morning we are there.
