We have a strong leadership team who are responsible for the overall running and governance of Little Crickets Forest School. 

Abbie Reynolds - Forest School Manager

Level 3 Forest School Leadership and Management

Level 6 Childhood Studies

With over a decade of experience of working with children, our Forest School is managed by Abbie Reynolds.  Abbie is a Level 3 Forest School Leader and is so passionate about the great outdoors that she is working towards her Level 4 Forest School and Outdoor Learner’s qualification, meaning that she can share her enthusiasm by training others. 

We’re thrilled to have Abbie at the helm of our Forest School; there is nothing that Abbie enjoys more than watching children in her care grow in confidence, self-esteem and resilience through outdoor exploration.  She loves creating learning adventures using the natural resources around the Forest School and is a firm believer in the philosophy that there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing!  Rain or shine, Abbie’s Forest School sessions are jam-packed with opportunities to explore the wonder of the natural world, and in her spare time, Abbie can be found outdoors walking her dog or strolling along the beach.   

Safeguarding at Little Crickets is our priority and, as such, we have a dedicated team to oversee this:

  • Mrs Jo Storey – Safeguarding Governor
  • Abbie Reynolds – Designated Safeguarding Lead

Telephone numbers for our Leadership and Safeguarding team can be found on our Contact Us page. 

We are fortunate to have a committed staff who are both highly professional, kind and committed.  Our Forest School Manager is supported by specialist Forest School and Childcare Practitioners.
