Little People


Two preschool children exploring forest,

Set within our beautiful woodland site just outside Woodleigh, children can use real tools, cook on a fire, manage risks and have fun developing independence, resilience and a love of nature by exploring the great outdoors. 

Aimed at children aged 18 months-5 years, accompanied by an adult - younger siblings welcome.

Playing in Sand

Set on the stunning Thurlestone North Beach children will be able to take part in beach combing, rock pooling, building sand castles, digging, splashing in the shallows, beach art, coastal ID and so much more! 

Aimed at children aged 0-5 years, accompanied by an adult - younger siblings welcome.

Happy Kids

Join us for some healthy, wholesome fun in the great outdoors! Children can build dens, use real tools, have a go at fire lighting, make new friends and burn off all that extra energy after a busy day at school! 

For children in years 1- 6 attending Kingsbridge Community Primary School.

Brilliant children's parties set in our woodland site in the South Hams. You can chose from a range of activities and games to suit your party guests. We'll provide the marshmallows for toasting, as well as hot drinks for everyone! 

Our Forest School parties are designed for children celebrating their 3rd to 11th birthday. 

Their minds were not built to sit and be taught.
They were built to explore, play, and learn.  Anon



I’m Gabrielle, the founder of Team Explore. I’m also a parent, a qualified Early Years Practitioner and a Forest School Leader. Over the past 10 years I’ve worked with children in nurseries, preschools and Forest Schools. I've also run children's activity classes and birthday parties, as well as having been an Ofsted registered childminder. I'm Paediatric and Outdoor first aid qualified, and fully DBS checked. 


Team Explore was created as I wanted to offer families something a bit different, something that was outside, child led, imaginative and active! A place for children with bundles of energy to come and explore and have fun. An antidote to the formulaic children's classes and groups on offer - as well as providing a warm and welcoming space for parents and carers to meet up.


I hope to see you soon at one of our brilliant events in the woods or on the beach!
