The Acorn Centre

Where Everyone Thrives

Get in Touch

Outdoor Learning

Our aim at the Acorn Centre is to provide children who have difficulty accessing mainstream educational settings with an alternative provision grounded in play and therapeutic activities. A typical Acorn session includes outdoor play and fresh air breaks as standard. 

Every Friday, the Acorn team provide specific outdoor learning sessions for selected children and their parent/carers. 

The centre is based on the Lincolnsfield Estate, Bushey. This is a woodland estate giving us access to acres of land suitable for outdoor learning activities. Some of our outdoor learning activities include: 

  • outdoor games 
  • building campfires and cooking 
  • Treasure hunts 
  • learning walks
  • Rigging hammocks & building dens
  • External day trips. Previous trips have included Wenzels bakery, Rock Up, Christmas Pantomime and Cinema.

Children may be invited to attend an outdoor learning session with their Parent/ Carer based on their Acorn journey. This a great opportunity for our Acorn team to get to know the children and their guardians, have fun outside and meet with other Acorn children.
