Forest School

What is Forest School?

Our Forest School is led by Jemma Kerby, who is qualified to lead forest school sessions in a dedicated area of our garden for our early years children.

Forest school is inspirational in allowing you to become actively engaged in the outdoor learning environment on a regular basis. It offers opportunities for holistic growth in an ever-changing environment. Forest school supports play exploration and careful measured risk taking, allowing you to grow, this also instils confidence and develops self-esteem through hands on learning experience in the natural environment. This therefore helps you to become healthy, resilient, creative, and independent learners. 

It inspires a deep connection to the world and understanding of how you fit into it. The process facilitates a nurturing non-judgmental environment where you can learn socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Forest school develops resilience and actively promotes problem solving allowing you to become more intellectually and socially aware.

It is important for children to learn how they want to learn, by digging children can educate themselves about different animal life and plants.
