Squirrels - 4 to 6 years

We’re starting a new provision for four and five year olds called Squirrels, to help young people gain skills for life at a time when it matters most and where it's most needed.

Our first Squirrel Drey, now called Pinecone Drey, opened In April 2022, we have been growing and learning what works with our Squirrels, many of whom are bilingual. 

We are now 18 months old and some of the original Squirrels and helpers have moved to Beavers!

It is very important that Squirrels understand sufficient English, as otherwise they really don't enjoy the stories, games and other activities.

Berry drey opened in November 2023, on Wednesday evenings at 5pm if you are interested in helping out please get in touch.

We accept a few young people each term and often new adults.  We normally try to make an offer within 1 year of joining the list. It is worth registering your interest in joining, as not everyone on our list takes up a space when offered.  

If your child is approaching 6 years old, time on the list helps towards joining Beavers too.

News & Blogs

Back in April 2022 our group started our Squirrel adventure.

We had a lot of fun learning, with the young people, what they enjoyed and how to adapt to the younger age group (4-5 years ).

What Squirrels enjoyed turned out to be a lot like what the other sections enjoy;

Games, food, exploring outdoors, building dens, making things, science experiments, badges and campfires... They also love stories.

Our first Drey is full to overflowing and a lot of young people do other things on Saturdays, so to meet demand we're starting a second Drey on Wednesday evenings at 5pm

We already have a small team for Wednesday, but are looking for additional adults, as many hands make light work, and occasionally volunteers can't attend.

We currently have a large team for Saturday Squirrels, but there are also spaces elsewhere in the group. If you would like to help please get in touch.

 On Saturday Squirrels heard the story of the 3 little pigs.. Naturally we wanted to Be Prepared for any big bad wolves who might try to come along and try to blow down our house. So  they had a fun time building very strong houses from Duplo. The  'wolves' huffed and they puffed, but they couldn't blow the houses down...
