A day with Little Forest Folk – outdoor learning for kids

Posted by Simon Wood - The Welly Farmer on 28th Mar 2019


Welcoming new parents to life in the great outdoors with Little Forest Folk was a joy. We were approached by Leanna Barrett, co-founder of Little Forest Folk, who asked us if we’d like to attend one of their open days for their new nursery in Twickenham.

Little Forest Folk include us on their recommended kit list. We have lots of parents who keep coming back to us for wellies when they need the next size up. So, this day was a good opportunity to meet existing customers and to say hello to prospective new families looking at the Twickenham nursery.

What we love most about Little Forest Folk is the fact that they give city living children chance to enjoy the great outdoors - experiencing rural life as we know it.

It’s clear that kids at Little Forest Folk get to enjoy the great outdoors in all weathers, connecting with nature. They are inspired to respect and appreciate the healthy outdoor lifestyle and we love the self-confidence and motivation the children displayed.

Things these parents told us they love about our warm wellies:

  • Our wellies keep kid’s feet warm and toasty
  • They don’t need lots of pairs of socks
  • The loops are handy to get wellies off
  • They wear well and get handed down

Leanna and husband James have done a fantastic job, developing from one nursery in Wimbledon in 2015, to six in April this year. They have also won a Queens Award for Enterprise last year – WOW.

We spoke to Leanne after the event and she said "“It was wonderful to have the Warm Wellies team join us at our open day for our brand new Twickenham nursery. We’ve been fans of these wellies for a long time now and we always recommend them to our families as part of our kit list because in our opinion, they are durable, sturdy and just fantastic at keeping little feet warm and dry when playing outdoors every day. We’ve tested out many different kinds of footwear for our children and these are by far the best.” 

If you know of any outdoor schools that would benefit from discovering our Warm Wellies – let us know – schools get a PERSONAL DISCOUNT CODE which they can use or pass on to parents. It gives them 10% OFF all our wellies – that’s kids and adults too.
