About Us


Natural foundations is a social enterprise based in Essex, passionate about getting children outside to play. Studies have shown that playing outside regularly improves children’s health, confidence, risk-awareness, social skills and can also improve their ability to learn. In Scandinavia forest schools – taking the classroom outside – have become a normal part of a child’s schooling.


Our sessions run throughout the year in all weathers. Our  weekly sessions are for all children and their parents/carers.  We can run a range of activities for early years settings and primary schools and home schooling groups. Weekends are closed for private parties


We have a geodesic dome and a yurt for shelter, but all our activities are designed to take place in all weathers and we can provide children with outdoor clothing and all the equipment to enable this to happen safely.
