What is Forest School?
Forest School is based around allowing children spend quality, recurring time in nature, which allows for the holistic learning and development of the child. Forest School is child-led and designed to develop the children’s relationship to themselves, each other, learning and nature in a safe way. Each child will engage with this in their own way and our aim is to support that as forest school leaders.
If you’re interested in your child participating in our After Schools Programme:
With many thanks for the support from Castletown House, who have kindly allowed us to use their woodland. Check out more about Castletown House here: http://castletown.ie/
