Our qualified Forest School leaders plan and deliver practical, outdoor activities.
The children will explore the environment and will learn about the outdoors. Research has shown that outdoor sensory activities promote children's learning. Our Forest School Leaders will provide support and develop trust with the children to raise confidence. Children are encouraged to take mitigated and assessed risks and work through problems themselves. Success at these types of activities will build a stronger understanding of the world and will increase self-esteem. Children are encouraged to work at their own pace with the adults acting as facilitators. Forest Schools have been widely credited for aiding behavioural and emotional progress and is especially valuable for children with special educational needs.
The children have a huge amount of fun and enjoyment whilst learning at Forest School.
