Forest School aims to connect people with wild places and awaken their curiosity. Children have a right to play, access the outdoors and experience the vibrancy of the natural world for themselves. Children can be inquisitive, following their interests and directing their own learning in a safe, engaging environment, facilitated by Forest School leaders. It opens doors to the natural world and all it encompasses, providing a unique experience for each child – nurturing their specific needs and zest for learning.
Confidence, self-esteem and independence are encouraged through a hands-on approach and creative, engaging activities. Opportunities to socialise with peers and solve problems enable children to build resilience and experience a healthy range of emotions. In their own time, children can experiment, take risks, make decisions and explore the possibilities. Through a holistic approach, every child can play, reach their potential and experience positive wellbeing.
