fun in the forest school

The opportunities given to children at forest school are in our opinion, priceless.  The children have the space and time to work at their own speed, without the pressure of confined spaces and timetables.  It is this lack of pressure which allows many children, particularly those who struggle in more mainstream surroundings, to really find their confidence and helps them make better understanding of their world.

Forest School is offered all year round as part of our daily pre school activities.  Sessions generally run from 10am till 12pm and 1pm till 3pm off site in our local woodland. Between these off-site sessions forest school activities take place on site around our fire pit, veg garden, wildlife pond and within our extensive grounds. 

Food is provided as per our preschool daily offer.

In recent years it has become more understood  that human’s need a connection to nature in order to stay mentally balanced.  Nature creates an opportunity to escape the stresses of our daily lives and relax in peace and quiet.  Children in our forest school experience nature first hand, they witness the changing of the seasons and get caught up in the wonder those changes bring about. Nature provides every learning opportunity our curriculum requires.  Children harness the power of nature and use it to help them understand science, numeracy, literacy, working as part of a team, problem solving and so much more.
