WORKING WITH FAMILIES AND THE COMMUNITY
At South Brockwells Farm we love working with children, families and local community groups to give them an experience of looking after and caring for our farm animals and the land, learning about where food comes from and the importance of farming in our everyday lives.
Managed by a former Deputy Head and fully qualified teacher and a team of activity leaders all holding enhanced DBS, first aid and child protection certificates, parents and carers can be assured that your children are in safe hands. We pride ourselves on our ability to meet the needs of our children and families and adopt a creative and therapeutic approach which underpins everything we do.
We host a range of activities throughout the year such as:
Mini Farmers Home Ed
Taking place on Tuesday mornings 9.30 – 12pm for children aged 7-11 and Thursday mornings 9.30 – 12pm for children aged 11-14 for children who are home educated.
Mini Farmers Holiday Club
Taking place 10am-2pm on select days during school holidays, children become mini farmers for the day getting involved in looking after the goats, sheep, horses, chicks and ducks to name but a few!
Taking place weekly, our dinky farmers (2-4year olds) and their parent/carer visit the farm for cuddles and a story with the animals, craft time and finding the chicken eggs!
Taking place in March and April, we open our doors to the public to come and see our busy lambing headquarters, bottle feed the sock lambs and sometimes, visitors are lucky enough to see a lamb being born!
