Forest school

Forest school supports holistic learning through play and exploration. Children learn about the environment, how to handle risks and to use their own initiative to solve problems and cooperate with others.

Forest school offers a learner led approach where children can learn through self directed play and exploration, guided by the teacher.

It is about the process rather than the result, being immersed and learning new skills.

Forest schooling has been shown to promote confidence, social skills, communication, motivation, concentration, physical ability, knowledge and understanding of oneself and the environment.

The benefits are new perspectives for all involved.
