What is Forest School?
Forest School is a holistic approach which allows children to achieve following a process which is individually tailored to their needs. Children attending our Forest School are viewed as unique and valuable individuals who are entitled to choose and to initiate and drive their own learning. The Forest School experience allows them to feel competent to explore, discover and be challenged. They are able to take appropriate risks and experience regular success; all the while developing strong and positive relationships with themselves, others and the natural world.
The approach interweaves with the ever-changing moods and marvels, potential and challenges of the natural world through the seasons to fill every session with discovery and difference. Yet each programme does follow an ethos and share a common set of principles, aimed at ensuring that all learners experience the cumulative and lasting benefits that quality Forest School offers.
Forest School Ethos
Forest School is an inspirational process, which offers learners regular opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands-on learning experiences in our environment with trees.
