Exchanging screen time for green time
Re-connecting communities with nature, the Forest School way.
WHAT IS FOREST SCHOOL?
Forest School is a child centred, nature based learning approach that focuses on developing the whole individual.
Forest School allows children the opportunity to develop inter and intra personal skills, understand nature and learn how to appropriately manage risk through play and specific activities such as campfire cooking and green woodworking.
Only by engaging a person in an outdoor setting can we hope to forge those deep experiential memories, key to preserving and protecting the environment and our existence as animals upon this planet.
SOME THOUGHTS ON US
GET STARTED WITH US IN 4 EASY STEPS
Our toddler looks forward to Forest School every week - it's definitely a highlight for him. Mark is amazing and always goes the extra mile to give the best experience he can. Seeing our toddler grow in confidence every week is just fantastic.
My three children age 10,5,4 attended forest school today for the first time. They were very dubious about going as it is the first time they have done anything like this and they didn’t want me to ‘leave them’ within about 15 mins Mark had made all three of them felt so comfortable they were happy for me to leave. And to top it off I picked them up with beaming smiles and full of stories!!
Thank you Mark
Both my sons absolutely love forest school! It’s great to have somewhere that both an 11 year old and 6 year old can have fun together. They love the freedom, building amazing things and come back full of stories of exploring! Amazing 😊
