Junior Herbalist Club

Junior Herbalist Club (JHC) has been designed to engage and educate children through play -and- learn. They will learn about the healing benefits of plants which grow around them. This learning will be performed in a safe and supervised environment. The benefits of this type of learning environment is that, all children will incorporate core subjects such as English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Botany, Latin and Cookery, as well as support the development of their interpersonal skills by making friends, gaining confidence, improving their fine motor control and developing a new skill set. Each month the children learn about the benefits of plants and make something to take home (Lavender bags, lip balms, bath bombs and much more!!). JHC has been planned so that each month the children build on their knowledge and skills. In the second year, the tasks become more complex, building on the skill set developed in the first year. At the end of each class the children are given a worksheet to complete so they can develop a portfolio of learning. At the end of year children are awarded a completion certificate.

JHC is aimed at children between the ages of 7-12 . However, older children are also welcome. Children under age 8 will require a parent or guardian to stay with them during class, some children over 8 may benefit from having a parent or guardian present during the class if required.

Classes are full of inspiring knowledge about common herbs and their uses. A lot of fun activities with arts and crafts, making creams, sprays, bath bombs, soaps, oils, teas, lip balms, lozenges and many more goodies , to take home with them.

JHC runs a 2 year extracurricular course for children which runs for 90 minutes (1.5 hours) once per month for 10 months or we run more compact classes 2.5 to 3 hours  once per month over 5 months, of the year and has been carefully crafted to take children on an inspiring wonderful journey of discovery, engaging all their senses with fun and playful practical skills.
