  • Saskia Callaars-De Gruyter Thu 8th Feb 2018 Attended with 3 year-old, and 6 year-old My kids and I love going to Bright woods sessions. We don't live round the corner, but feel it's definitely worth making the track to Bright woods. I love how children are allowed and even encouraged to be themselves, to roam and to explore. There is such a lovely, gentle atmosphere at each session. And my kids have gained a love for nature and being outside that I'm not sure would have been there otherwise. 5 stars!
