Frequently Asked Questions

Before starting Little Muddy Boots sessions, please read our information pack which includes details of what to expect, suggested clothing and our latest adjustments in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines for keeping you, your child and our staff safe.

At Little Muddy Boots there is often a little, or a lot of mud – so we always suggest wearing wellies (and good socks!) even if you are just exploring your garden or your park! Its means a puddle can be jumped in, mud can be splashed in, and every other adventure in-between. There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing! Click here to read our guide.

Are Little Muddy Boots Sessions running?

Yes, they are, as long as Covid restrictions allow the garden is open for classes. We have put in a huge amount of time and care into making sure our sessions in the Little Muddy Boots garden and nursery setting are safe and meet Covid-19 guidance. Please see our for full Covid-19 procedures (add link/document).

What age can you start Little Muddy Boots?

We run two types of classes, our ‘original’ Little Muddy Boots sessions where children of 2 years and over can enjoy the organised activities, whether it’s an individual challenge or a group activity.

Then we also have our toddler playgroups where our youngest Little Muddy Booters (1-3 years) can try out some activities at their own pace as well as getting down to the important job of creating the perfect mud pie! Younger siblings (0-1 years) who are joining their big brother / sister at the session are welcomed and are free to come along.

Our Bracknell site is buggy friendly and there is changing facilities on site.

Once they are old enough, please chat to your Group Leader as to when they can officially become a Little Muddy Booter and join in fully!

Can I bring siblings and twins along?

We actively encourage siblings to join (it’s so much fun for families!) and we offer a 25% discount off second bookings.

The sessions are set out to include all age groups and provide a safe and secure setting for you to bring your children.

Any babes in arms can be placed in a carrier, sling or buggy and kept close to you throughout the session.

Do you run sessions, regardless of the weather?

We firmly believe in the saying ‘there is no such thing as bad wether, just inappropriate clothing!’ Little Muddy boots sessions run regularly throughout the year, come rain or shine.

We would only cancel a session high winds / storms are anticipated. In this scenario, you would receive the option to join another group on a different day, or be credited for that one session.
Please do read blog (link) and information pack (link in bio) which includes details of suggested clothing for you and your children.
