The Forest School initiative originated in Scandinavia and has been rapidly developing in England and Wales over the last 4 years. One of the reasons for this enthusiasm is that forest schools have the same basic underlying principles adopted from the Scandinavian model. A qualified forest school leader devises a program of learning that is based on the children’s interests and that allows the children to build on skills from week to week, at their own pace. We provide an onsite safe woodland environment for the children to explore.
We ask parents to provide waterproof clothing and wellington boots for these sessions.
