Forest Schools – living and learning in Warm Wellies
Read on and claim your special Forest School discount on Warm Wellies
As farmers, we wholeheartedly embrace the philosophy of encouraging and inspiring young people through positive outdoor experiences. The innovative Forest School educational approach to outdoor play and learning is something we admire and are keen to support.
We believe the Warm Welly Company is the only welly provider that focuses on developing warm wellies for children. Forest Schools right across the country have been choosing our wellies for years, because we understand the value of keeping feet warm when it’s wet and cold and we also offer special discounts to Forest Schools and their parents.
Helping you keep children exploring the outdoors for longer
We know Forest Schools demonstrate success with children of all ages who visit the same local woodlands on a regular basis – even when its colder, wetter and muddier.
Autumn is traditionally a time for change. It’s back to school time with new shoes (and wellies) for growing feet and natures change of season too. Lush green canopies giving way to crisp golden leaves, frost, wet weather and snow. It’s the perfect place to develop relationships between the learner and the natural world. A pair ofWarm Wellies can help make a difference – keeping children contented outdoors for longer periods of time.
The proof is in the wearing….
"We have been recommending Warm Wellies to our parents for 2 years and our parents are always delighted by the quality of the wellies. They are easy to order and warm to wear and, with our children being outside all day every day, they stand the test of time". Leanna Barrett, Co-Founder Little Forest Folk
“We’re outside 8 hours every day in all weathers and the children are required to wear appropriate waterproof clothing and footwear. We find Warm Wellies are extremely durable, the neoprene lining keeps the children’s feet warm with adequate grip on the sole to play safely without slipping. They also benefit from a reflective hanging loop. We would recommend The Warm Welly Company to any outdoor or forest school nurseries, the wellies are fantastic and the service we receive is always very friendly and efficient.” Woodland Outdoor Kindergartens, Glasgow
Neoprene lined wellies – a material difference
Neoprene is best known as a lining for wet suits, but did you know it was also used by NASA astronauts? Neoprene gets its soft, spongy and insulating capabilities from a process that produces tiny micro bubbles (air pockets). It has been used as insulation in adult wellies for a long time, but when our children were small and helping (playing) on the farm, we couldn’t find any warm wellies for them – that’s why we designed and produced our own neoprene lined wellies for little ones.
The temperature test
7 degrees of difference – that’s the result of the ten-minute temperature test carried out by our children. They compared standard cotton lined children’s wellies to our own neoprene lined warm wellies and were excited to see their experiment showed how much warmer our wellies are.
