Why Forest School?
What skills can your child learn from being at Forest School?
Nature and the Environment:
Your child will be experiencing the world in its natural form, watching the changes of the seasons with their own eyes, and making sense of it in their own unique way.
Positive and Healthy Enquiry:
We encourage children to question and debate about what they discover, and lead their own enquiries into things they find interesting. This gives children practice with their own voice and the skill to reason and make sense of things from what they have discovered themselves.
Our sessions encourage team work and give children the opportunity to explore friendships and developing social skills. Friends who forest school together...stay together!
The nature of Forest Schools exposes children to a variety of physical stimulation and challenges. With sensory experiences from the weather, and the ever changing natural environment, children develop a strong connection with their own abilities and also with the natural world.
Maths, literacy and science should not be confined to a classroom. These subjects are woven into every aspect of our everyday lives, and we encourage children to gain understanding and use of these core subjects from a practical and real life perspective.
Self care, confidence and wellbeing:
In a tough world, it is so important to realise one's own worth, value and place. Our sessions are dedicated to drawing out children's true self and ability, facilitating self love and providing the space that is needed for a healthy and happy mind. With so much research evidencing the benefits of nature immersion and positive wellbeing, it is clear to see why Forest Schools is gaining popularity.
