A bit about Forest School:

We will be offering weekly sessions of time in nature, play, woodland crafts, den building, rope work, nature crafts, mud area, all to facilitate getting kids back to nature, in all weathers.

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.
